Reminder for Activity Day Log Hi All, If you took part in last week’s activity day (day of your choice, various days or whole week) can you send me your log if you were on (even if no QSOs made). Wednesday at the extreme latest….. many thanks. All reports greatly appreciated… Bob GM4UYZ ... See MoreSee Less
Hi folks just a wee prompt for your logs from last week...thanks in advance for all your help

Today, I done a little 12 mile hike that involved a lunch break at the east lomond car park (so nice high take off) and heard a short qso between an op in Livingston and another op up a hill somewhere, he was called Chris. My mouth was full of cheese and salami on a roll at the time, so didn’t call out. At the same time, there was an SP8 station who briefly came in very very strong on 145.500. Again, I nearly choked on my roll! This was on my FT70 handie, so even more surprising. Must have been one hell of a brief lift on because I never heard any DX again. To say I was surprised, was an understatement! I’m pretty certain that the other two Scottish ops didn’t hear the dx as they were calling at the exact same time, but I could hear the SP8 in between their CQ calls. ... See MoreSee Less
After nearly 5 years off the air (other than marine radio at Sea Cadets), I'm so excited that I can listen in to various calls. Still to transmit yet! Loving my new radio (even if you all claim its just skype! 😃
If there's anyone in the club that would like to join in a net sometime, or wants to share advice with me, then please get back to me.
Here's my setup today. I'm going to try and get my VHF antenna somewhere sensible on the roof for the odd time that I can actually get a signal out of Haddington. ... See MoreSee Less
Further to my experiments with APRS post. I've made the RF log dashboard for MB7UEL available on the Internet.
APRSIS uses a first packet wins all others dropped approach, so any excess packets received by multiple igates are dropped. This means you can't see everywhere an RF signal is being received when looking at sites such as aprs.fi.
While APRS isn't a propagation tool, seeing where signals are being RX can be both interesting and useful.
Ignore other comment as I didn't finish reading the article which explained so much more.Tony wasn't into packet radio and the Raspberry Pi hadn't been thought of but he was a very keen fan of ARRL some of their members used to meet up at National Hamfest at Newark.❤❤❤
Getting you in Prestonpans. Doesn't always show on aprs.fi.
If you’ve ever worked GM2T, GB2LBN, GB2MOF, GB2NMM or MM0CPS/P, you’ve worked someone on one of these radios.
The only reason these are for sale is that GM2T have updated our HF radios so these have become available.
They have lived around 99% of their lives either in their box or their flight case. They have only really been used about 6 days s year.
I’d say they were in very very good condition even if the boxes are a bit tatty.
Each radio comes with a mic, manual double box and power lead. They are both mains radios with built in power supplies.
Those who know me, know that I vang on about how great these radios are. The receiver really is excellent and still up there with the best of them. We gave always also had excellent transmit audio reports.
They have always been been use with resonant antennas however the tuner in these rigs will tune a wet bit of string.
You can get these cheaper but due to the lack of use, these rigs are the ones to grab. I’m looking for £750 ovno each for them.
You will try them before you but them at my place when you come to collect one. Or both if you really want.
PM me on messenger. If we’re not friends, post below to tell me you’ve PM’d. ... See MoreSee Less
