The Newquay and district amateur radio society meet every other Thursday at Treviglas community college
Work continues to improve GB3NQ ATV repeater, filters have been installed to minimise the effect on DATV receive of new new 70cm repeater and 3rd Harmonic of GB3NC 2m repeater. We have fitted a Halo antenna for 437 digital ATV ½ way up the mast. Stations are now transmitting DATV through GB3NQ.
The beacon keys in CW and PI4 format at regular intervals, with PI4 decoding software available from http://www.rudius.net/oz2m/software/pi-rx/index.htm
We have been experiencing some cross Interference problems from adjacent transmitters. Some of this is due to the high powers permitted to the commercial masts we have close by our site.
To make sure that our own equipment is not causing problems a working party was set up to relocate the beacon equipment away from GB3NC and GB3HB repeaters.
The work involved relocating feeders, the six beacon transmitters and organising the workshop fitting. The work was completed on March 14 and we believe has been entirely successful in that we cannot detect any beacon cross talk on the repeaters.
Let us know if you find any break through.
How you ever wondered how we get the antennas installed?
