FISTS CHIRP N DRIFT 2019

DESCRIPTION A second Chirp n Drift activity is scheduled for Monday 6th May, a UK Bank Holiday. Monday 6th May then, dust off the chirpy gear and spread the word for another exciting and interesting event. I hope to work a few more 1154s and elusive Parasets this time, but homebrew gear is also most welcome!! All welcome obviously, not just FISTS!


DATES and TIMES (UTC) Monday 6th May 18:00 - 00:00Z (BST: 6th May 19:00 - 7th May 01:00)

Are there specific frequencies? All bands or just LF? I have an ARC-5 modified for 80 and would like to have a go but not sure about etiquette / protocols.

Peter,

Whilst any band is available it's likely to be on 80m. 40 is possible but my money is on 80

Protocols are just usual amateur ones. Listen, call, enjoy. I will be using my T1154 on cw all being well. These events are usually well attended and a number of rather interesting sets are heard.

Hope to hear you on

D

There will be more vintage radios on the air on D-Day. Listen on 3.615 AM for WW2 kit in operation in France and this country.

The 3615 activity is all day from early morning I read. I will try to join in just to add T1154 R1155 to the list but then I'll go on CW about 3.56 or 7.03 mc/s.

Too bad 3615 kHz is so often plastered by a raucous digital buzzsaw-sounding signal a couple of kHz below. It usually stops around 0800 but before that I need to shut down the passband below the carrier on the SDR to hear any VMARS activity.
