I've been on 17m ft8 with a dipole for a.couplenof hours. It's open to most of the world ATM.
I’m hoping I get a chance to turn the radio on tomorrow. Don’t want to miss good conditions. Had some luck lately on 40m early morning at sunrise with contacts to Japan. Amazing how the DX comes up just at the transition from dark to light. And you can hear European stations further east working the DX before we hear them here.

Not too impressed with Yaesu's quality control. That's the second new handheld I've bought and the second that I've had issues with straight out of the box. Neither of them were particularly cheap either! ... See MoreSee Less
Hope you get it sorted Ronan.
Any more CPSARC members with C4FM capable radios? I have FTM-300 and an FT3D. Happy with both radios, but I find the Fusion side of things a bit flakey unless connected directly to Wires X via the laptop....
Replacement radio arriving this evening from ML&S. Hopefully this one will last longer than a week.

I see that the NARSA Rally at the Norbreck Hotel in Blackpool has moved to 24 April 2022 ... See MoreSee Less
I can't go now, I have a holiday booked for that week
Is it book it on your own this year?
Plan on going
Travelodge Blackpool South looks available. Lytham an option. Probably best that we all try to book as close together as we can.
Is it Premier Inn ? Need to open up to others to see who wants to go.
Travelodge. No Premier Inns nearby.
Quite fancy not taking responsibility for booking this year
Yes was thinking that too Bob as unfair when folks drop out. Flip side is we'd all need to book at same time to make sure we can stay in the one place.
Agree. I will send out email tomorrow to those who have shown interest in past. Set a deadline for reply. Then look to see what's available.
If any of the club members are interested please let me know please.
Either drop me an email or leave a message here. thank you
Replies by Sunday latest to enable that a group booking can be made. Normally book twin rooms.
