W&S EME Array Installed!   December 8th, 2011

On Wednesday 8th December we completed the installation of an EME antenna system comprising 4 x 6 element 144MHz LFA Yagis made by G0KSC. This was the original pre-production antenna system that G0KSC used for his EME tests when developing the VFA system. We are encouraged that we can regularly hear beacons over 500km to the east. We need to do more tests to establish the propagation for terrestrial contacts from here in Hockley. This is part of our program towards the sponsorship of the World EME Conference next August in Cambridge. Hopefully we will be able to begin EME tests once the necessary software and Linear Amplifier is installed. Currently we are running 50 Watts under the call G0PEP. Anybody wishing to check their path back here to Hockley should e-mail us for a test.

Sounds nice! Can we encourage you to come on during the 2m UK Activity Contests, I wonder?
