    Repeater Contest 2009

    I decided to go out portable on the Saturday Afternoon/Evening to see if i could work a few people through GB3VL repeater from the usual portable site on the NY Moors IO94LI. I managed to get setup on site quite quickly with 23cm and a good 2m talkback setup.

    GB3VL was a lovely picture as usual but after a few calls on 144.750 it was looking dissapointing! Not long after Bob, G7AVU called in and we made contact easily on 23cm TV with P4-P5 video over 120km. Pat G4EKD called in and also Dave G6SKO, but they were quite weak on 2m. I transmitted to Dave and he did see a weak signal from me near Derby over 140km away but it was not resolved into a readable picture.. he did see me FB through VL at the same time though :-)

    After the simplex QSOs in the afternoon i had a tune about on tv and found GB3EY just by chance. I have tried to receive GB3EY from this site but never managed it before, It was a nice surprise! saying that i did not get any replies..... Hopefully GB3EY will be visible next time i am out and we can find someone active and have a qso through it.

    Here are a few photos of signals...

    These were all captured from the camcorder video so apologies for the quality!
