I was operating /P with the Guildford Radio Society station today G5RS/P from JO00EW for the 4m PW contest. We had an home-brew 8ele yagi at about 40-45ft AGL in a very good location with good takeoff in most directions.
Beacons that we could hear in the flat conditions where GB3BUX, GB3BAA, GB3ANG, GB3MCB, G4JNT (we think), GB3RAL and EI4RF.
We where also able to receive MS pings and the occasional weak MS burst from OY6BEC in IP62MB!
Nothing was received from both the GB3CFG and GB3WSX beacons at this location. Though conditions where flat and we suffered with static rain at times. Are both of these beacons currently off the air?
