13 cm calling frequency.

Hi Jayson

I picked it up at a hamfest so unfortunately I don't have any details on the unit. It's quite a large thing taking up a fair bit of room in the transverse box though.

Re: 13 cm calling frequency.

Im pretty sure this was the plot from the filter Hayden. I wonder if it could be dropped in Freq a little more? From memory I had trouble doing that but could be worth another try.

Re: 2019 Summer VHF-UHF Field-Day Contest

Good to work a couple on the ghz from qf12dc best contacts to vk3alb/vk3acg on 2.4ghz just over 200km! Shame I couldn’t get some of the Melbourne stations point out west. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20190112/472751506c8716baa0cb594ef71ea79f.jpg https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20190112/c0231632...

Re: RFI from Honda 1KVA Geni

Hi i have noted many hams use an EMI filter mounted close to the generator usually mounted in a small box with a socket outlet mounted on it for the station use. If you have an old UPS they commonly have a suitable filter in them. something like this http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/AC-250V-20A-Noise-Supp...

Re: H.F Interference, how to contact the ACMA

No worries nick

I have a few more days to wait otherwise I'll be calling them back. Problem is now it's wet the interference will hide itself so hopefully they will contact me and we can sort it out.

Will let you know how I go.
