23rd Nov 2017 - RX rack delay apology

Post by admin » Thu Nov 23, 2017 8:45 pm

Hi everyone and I start with an apology from Graham and myself. :oops:

I have to say sorry to all those waiting for the new rack with 70cm. This will happen, but now it will be early 2018. Obviously the weather has now turned poor and darks nights are set in, and we have both had a very busy year with various projects/work. Just not enough hours in the day during 2017. The changeover/upgrade will take quite a while to do, and neither of us has had the time to spare since Easter.

I have had the new receive rack on soak test at home for the last few months, and apart from a failed USB stick it has worked flawlessly. It has even received the odd drone transmissions on 23cm. We did get out once to do some 70cm ATV testing with the new rack and it all worked okay, but Grahams 70cm DATV transmitter setup was not the best we've operated with!

So early 2018 is the new target to get the rack installed as it's not happening this side of xmas now I'm afraid. It does give me time to fine tune a few things and experiment with new possibilities for the future of GB3YT.

73s and have a good xmas.
Kay & Graham.
