Re: 12th /13.
From recent postings it appears VE1ZZ is now crystal controlled on 136.502
(ish) and I guess we'll be looking there on the 12/13. I do hope that's OK
for an evening.
However this is not really a suitable transmit frequency from Europe for our
upcoming sked with John Jack and possibly Larry.
Unlike the one way or crossband events, any two way will need to be closely
So where? 135.8 - 136.0 would be clear of the Greek RTTY and is a frequency
previously favoured by John.
137.70 -137.80 is the traditional QRSS band in Eu and may be better if CFH is
transmitting data on the LSB.
BTW. Is there a congingency plan in the event of CFH being on that evening?
For example, a remote receive site, a directional loop etc? I notice John
G4CNN has had considerable success recentley receiving VE1ZZ on his new loop,
so it can be done 'across the pond' .
The ability for all the Europeans to QSY to the quietest end of the band on
the night would be an advantage. - Maybe Mike's QRSS list could be updated.
So, who's participating?
I'll try and bribe my way into the tower again!
A happy New Year to all
