WAB Squares.   3 comments

I have had a request from Dave, G4SQA, who does WAB. He needs the following squares:

SC28 – Peel area, SC36 – the tiny one up from the airport, and NX30, just north of Jurby.

Is anyone, or the club interested in activating these squares? It would be a good activity for the club. I’ll put my name forward, who’s next?

Eary Cushlin   2 comments

I have just read the article in Manx Tails about the refurbishment to Eary Cushlin.

At £1500 a week, I think we will not be visiting there as a club again!

Looks nice though……..

For salefor repeater funds.   Leave a comment

I have for sale three antenna brackets, the procceds of which will be going to repeater funds.

The brackets are hand crafted by myself, and approximately 100mm x 100mm, and made from 6mm aluminium angle. I intend to put them on eBay for  £15, (Moonraker want £19 for a similar item) but if anyone on islanD would like one, I’m asking for £10, I already have one satified customer!

The brackets will take up to a 2″ mast, and are fitted with SO239 sockets, but as they are very robust, you could customise it to your own needs.

Dig deep, support thr repeater network and the keeper!

You can contact me by phone, (I’m in the book) email, (gd0oud “at”manx dot net) or maybe on the repeater.

PL259   Leave a comment

Does anyone know of a supplier of decent quality PL259 plugs?

The ones I have had delivered today are going back. Not only are the solder holes far too big, over 50% of the diameter of the body, but the body of the plug is some cheap alloy, and cannot be soldered. They are fine for the C.B. bodge of screwing the outer braid back against the insulation, but not a proper connection.

Let me know who sells the real thing, and I’ll get my and in my pocket.

Stuart, GD0OUD.
