ATV Contest 2007

This year my contest activity was going to be a lot better organised, Eddie G0EHV and Clive G4FVP joined me up on the North york Moors with 23,13,3cm bands on the Sunday morning.

Fortunately it was much better to start the day so finding the location was a bit easier this time without the fog!!

Eddie brought the mast, 3cm and also 2m talkback equipment. I took took 13 and 23cm equipment which just about filled the car, it is surprising how much one needs just to go out portable for one morning...!



Conditions were not the best and we only managed to make one contact on 23/13cm both ways with Mike, G0DPS at P5 with no problems which was good to confirm the equipment was working!. Nothing was received on 3cm due to low ish power on the band and non LOS path between us.

We did manage to contact quite a few stations on 2m talkback but did not manage to exchange anything on television :-(



GB3VL was its usual good signal from the site but that was probably our best dx on ATV for the day..hi

There was also activity from Holland and Belgium who we tried to work on ATV but unfortunately no luck there either despite reasonable 2m signals. All was not so bad after tuning around on 2m we found EA2TO/1 calling CQ peaking S9 at times, we managed to work him on both 2m and 70cm ssb! recording of EA2TO/1 loc:IN83FE



Here are some photos of the station:
