Re: MAD - Sunday February 24, 2019

Howling up here on the ridge tonight... But well under gale force. Sunday still looks wet and windy. No formal confirmation of a cancellation yet... But I'm assuming its highly unlikely and a delay to March 24 could be a good option! https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20190222/b642e73f3fc37854931a6fb...

Re: MAD - Sunday February 24, 2019

With TC Oma now approaching the VK4 coast, the WX forecast has changed and by the weekend we're now looking at 60-70% chances of rain... But at this stage falls of less than 10mm! It's an MAD weekend so I would put the chances of rain much closer to 100% chance of rain and lots of it. I don't think...

Due to continued interference coming from the Somerset area (Brisbane Valley) on the input frequency we will be forced to implement a Digital Code Squelch on the input frequency while we wait for the ACMA to act on the lodged interference complaint.

Re: 2019 Summer VHF-UHF Field-Day Contest

Saturday is my wedding anniversary, needless to say, given I like being married I won’t be going portable that day. However, I’ll be active on 24 and 47GHz from Mt Cootha looking South on the Sunday morning. Primarily to make contact with VK4OE but sure am open to others having a go. Unfortunately a...

Only a 6m home station (QG62mo) periodically on the Sat afternoon in between chores. Sunday is out for me due to assessment commitments, dammit.

Re: My Pi Journey

My PI experience has been very positive so I thought I would share my experiences so far. A little off topic as I have not really used the PIs for a front end device as described in previous posts. The VK4RRC 70cm DStar repeater gateway is a R PI 3 running Jessie and the Western Digital Group distri...

Moreton Bay is considered Aust waters, bounded by Moreton and North Stradebroke Is, so vk4uh/mm will be sufficient
