DX Picnic this weekend

posted 30 May 2019, 10:55 by Mike Brown
Don't forget we have a DX Picnic this weekend at the usual location (contact a committee member for details if you don't know where it is). On arrival call on 145.500 for gate access. Setup is from 2.30 pm on Friday 31 May.

We aim to have the usual station set up using the club mast. Meanwhile Greg, G4EBY, will be entering the DigiFest contest over the weekend from the site. He'll be using his own portable antennas to show what can be done with a simple setup. The contest sessions are Sat 0400-1200 and 2000-0400 plus Sun 1200-2000. Greg expects to use the following modes: RTTY75, BPSK63, Hellschreiber and Olivia250/4. An ideal opportunity to see what those modes are all about!

DX Picnics are always subject to weather conditions. It currently seems unlikely there will be problems but the email reflector will be used for updates if things change.
