APRS Digipeater

After a good bit of testing, we now have one of Scott, N1VG‘s Opentracker2 Prototypes ready for deployment and Tommy, EI2IT’s QTH. The Coverage should be roughly what is predicted in the picture below.

EI7IG on walkabout

Persuaded the XYL and her sister to go walking yesterday, and took the opportunity to excercise the Conterra-inc Radio Harness. We walked up to the top of SuĂ­ Finn (Seefin) in the Monavullagh mountains.

I managed to raise EI2IT, EI5JF and M3MEL (Cornwall) on simplex from the cairn on the top, and EI1CN on the SEARG repeater system.

2m Counties Contest

Many thanks to all who turned up last night, a most informative and enjoyable meeting was had by all I think. Keep August 27th in your diaries as we’re planning an assault on Slievenamban for the 2m Counties Contest.
