3cm Learning


Ween up a big hill today to play on 3cm:

Pretty nice day in my bit of England:

Here's a video of the Finningley beacon as RX today:

Here's what I learned today:

  1. The beam heading on the dish is extremely sharp;
  2. I need a more accurate way to determine beam headings;
  3. I need a way to turn the mast whilst also tuning round on the radio;
  4. The fitting of the mast into the base is a bit loose; the pole isn't completely vertical
All in all, 3/10 could do better. But I have made QSOs now on 10GHz and that feels like a great achievement.


Here's Miss Pepper, assisting as per usual:
