[2011/07/31 14:15:17] <mike> Wow, conditions might be up a bit for 2m. I can hear GB3WR
[2011/07/31 14:21:50] <mike> 56 miles. Once the GP is over I might have to see if I can get in as well

[2011/07/31 14:43:02] <mike> craag: do you know of any good places to see what current 2m propogation is like ?
[2011/07/31 14:43:43] <craag> I don't
[2011/07/31 14:44:30] <mike> i was trying to work out if recieving gb3wr is conditions or location.
[2011/07/31 14:45:44] <craag> hmm it would probably be similar to 6m or 4m reports
[2011/07/31 14:47:07] <mike> I found one site with some tropo predictions which seemed to suggest none at the moment
[2011/07/31 14:48:23] <mike> I think I've found a way of mounting my dipole just outside the window (G clamps ftw)
[2011/07/31 14:49:37] <craag> ah cool. That should improve things quite a bit!
[2011/07/31 14:50:59] <mike> still requires the window being wide open which is a pain
[2011/07/31 14:51:46] <mike> but it took sn from being S3 to s9+
[2011/07/31 14:52:46] <craag> nice!
[2011/07/31 14:53:12] <craag> I'm hoping I'll be able to get in to SN this year.
[2011/07/31 14:54:58] <craag> Is it the cable going through the open window or the mount as well?
[2011/07/31 14:55:27] <mike> the mount as well
[2011/07/31 14:55:52] <mike> just tried the dipole horizontal ad listening on 144.300 and heard something
[2011/07/31 14:55:58] <mike> not not strong enough to be intelligable
[2011/07/31 15:03:22] <craag> That's hopeful
[2011/07/31 15:04:22] <mike> hmm waterside club and ivarc so not that far
[2011/07/31 15:05:11] <mike> and a really poor signal which also sounded a bit iffy so I'm wondering if im actually picking up the real signal
[2011/07/31 15:05:59] <mike> I shall keep listening and see what I hear
[2011/07/31 15:06:17] <craag> First tuesday of each month is the 2m activity night, apparently theres often some SSB around then.
[2011/07/31 15:09:23] <mike> might have to try listenign then
[2011/07/31 15:40:14] <craag> Btw: Do you know if anyone has asked SUSU about Freshers week yet?
[2011/07/31 15:50:53] <mike> not sure
[2011/07/31 15:51:08] <mike> ive been a bit busy at work with doing things and moving offices
