  7. Really impressive creature. Heard you mention it on the 80m net this morning, and had a little Google.

    Enjoy your not-radio!

  11. Dear members

     

    The Institution of Engineering and technology (IET) are organising a Zoom style presentation on Wednesday 8 September at 7pm entitled ‘Aspidistra and the Broadcast Group of the Diplomatic Wireless Service including the WW2 transmission of black propaganda’. As you should already know, G6KMP is organising an actual visit to the site on 20 August, so this is your opportunity to view this fascinating scenario from several directions !

     

    You do not need to be a member of the IET to attend, and I advise you to contact the IET and claim your place via https://events.theiet.org/events/aspidistra-and-the-broadcast-group-of-the-diplomatic-wireless-service-including-the-wartime-transmission-of-black-propaganda/.

  12. I hope there's a good turnout this evening. Unfortunately I can't be there, but if somebody could snatch a few photos and a summary of the results, I'd be very happy to post them on the website.

    I'll be listening in on the Fox's Tx frequency, and may even stream the output on Zoom. I'm not sure why I would do that, but then again, why not. And don't ask me for a bearing from my home QTH!

    Good luck everyone, and thanks again to Stella, Alan and everyone else involved.

  13. Hi all,

    Just been on the 20m lunch time net.

    The path length from here to Sussexc is about 350km. Way too short for F layer propagation at 14MHz. All Sussex stations were 5/9+. Barry in Sweden was likewise but I'd have expected that from F. So I'm going to suggest that was Sporadic E. Certainly reflection from the lower ionosphere.

    And it was sporadic. No sooner than Kim and Russell had called in (about 10 minutes after me) than the Sussex stations faded to nothing. The normal state.

    All good fun.

  14. Dear Stella and Alan,

    Sorry that I shall not be able to take part in support of the event and MSARS but hope that it goes really well with lots of entries,interest and fun.

    Well done for organising it and keeping MSARS going well.

    73/88,

    Gavin - G6DGK.

  15. Tomorrow Evening Friday 9th July Come & Join the MSARS Fox Hunt

    7.15pm ready for 7.30pm first transmission.

     

    All the Hounds will be starting from Cyprus Hall Car Park.

     

    Normally everybody meets there from approx 7.15pm.

     

    Sealed envelopes will be passed out to those teams that take on the Foxes, inside will be the location of the Pub for those who give up!

     

    The first transmission will be sent from the Foxes location at 7.30pm, we will be using 145.375Mhz +/- QRM, this will be 2 mins long and we will be then transmitting for 1 min every 15 mins after that at 7.45, 8.00 & 8.15 etc.

     

    If nobody has found us by this point some general clues will be slipped out during the 1 minute chat so listen carefully or your drinking time in the pub may be short!

     

    For those that are new to this you will need, ideally 2m Handheld & small Beam Antenna, Map (OS 198), Pencil, Ruler & Compass for plotting signal direction.

     

    Alan G8YKV will write a short guide on how to go Fox Hunting for those that have never done it before and send it to you tomorrow for publication to go with this.

     

    Regards
