Our best DX was DK5QN, 666km on 2m – the top station made 340 contacts!
There seem to be lots of entries in the 2m Open section (400w Max)
Our 4m aerial is a bit suspect – it will be thoroughly examined!
BARC’s first field day outing of 2019 was during the RSGB National Field Day event on June 1st and 2nd. Perfect weather on the Saturday saw members setting up camp and experiencing operations from a low-noise site. We heard lots of station on 20m and some on 10m. Although the club didn’t enter the contest Paul G0VVM, Alan G3UQW and Richard M0RNE provided contacts for a number of entrants during Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning. The experience was certainly enjoyed by all of us – and thank you to all who attended to support and help out.
The RSGB has posted videos from last years convention to YouTube, including this one by club member Noel G8GTZ:
Advances in Amateur TV
Monday 16th is our Annual General Meeting.
Our September 18th meeting will be given by Paul (G4CSD) on the topic of antenna modelling software.
An introduction to the SDRPlay 2 receiver with a tour of the accompanying SDRuno software.
The demonstration will also show how to link SDRuno with other software such as FLDIGI and Audacity to record and decode signals through virtual audio cables.
It’s time for the first of this year’s Radio Fun days !
The event is open to club members and will be held this Saturday 13th May.
This is an opportunity to do radio stuff in the beautiful Hampshire countryside, taking advantage of the low noise floor to get those elusive signals and contacts.
Activities are expected to begin at 10:30 and close at around 18:30.

A not-to-be-missed opportunity, make a note in your diary !
Welcome to our new web site! Based on WordPress, this should give us more features, a modern appearance, and simpler arrangements for hosting and maintenance.
We are hoping to also use it as a platform for promoting projects within the club, and as a showcase for our radio fun days, field days, and notable achievements.
If you are working on a new construction project, have some interesting measurements to share, let us know and we can post it here.
