Noel - G8GTZ
Saturday: Portsdown Hill IO90LU near Portsmouth with 146.5 MHz (DATV sked with G4GUO)
Sunday: Povington Hill IO80WP near Lulworth with 146.5 and 5.6 GHz FM ATV.
Happy to take other bands if requested by others.
Usual site IO94MJ.
QRV all bands from around 11am onwards
Also qrv from home on Saturday with QRO on 23cm ATV/DATV if anyone wants to try then.
Bands will be 146 DATV, 5.6 GHz ATV and 24GHz NB.
Talk back 144.750, 144.175 (Microwave TB), KST, DXspot and 07881914287
Also we do have a low bandwidth chat only channel connected to DXspot that can be used by mobiles with poor coverage. Before you leave home, log in to the main DXspot site using your mobile device (to pick up authentication cookies) and then go to https://philcrump.co.uk/dxchat/?room=1 and you'll have a full screen chat only interface Well that was the original instruction from Phil but it now looks like you can just log in on the page...
BTW - it is hoped that G4UVZ and G3VPF will also be out on 5.6GHz ATV.

With nobody on a path to the downs for 5GHz I will be staying in my warm shack on Sunday.
Saturday I'm heading N/W to collect a vehicle I acquired for portable ops.
I will be at Povington Hill, near Lulworth in Dorset tomorrow (Sunday 17th) from about 1130 with 5665 MHz FM and 146.5 MHz DATV. Also 437 DATV RX only. Talkback on 144.75 slant polarisation.
Screen captures below using the Portsdown software with an EasyCap. These single-frame captures seem to emphasise the noise on the signal - its amazing how much averaging and filtering your eye/brain does when you are looking at a monitor!
