Thanks Mike.
I would probably build a T2LT for those frequencies I think and hiltop it. My Sirio gainmaster pulls in a lot of noise at homebase, I cant seem to be rid of it despite tuning the coax to the half wavelengths. Then again I am a very new M7 and know almost nothing at the moment, still finding my feet so to speak.
Probably need to join a proper ham club and find out more about building antennas and equipment that way.

Hi. Simon.

Yes. Good idea join Ham club. I started @ Chester & District Ham
Club in '59 & Hastings area club from '72/85. A word of caution a
Home base not a good idea. If like me u get S7-9 Qrm from 27.000
2mths ago. I sold all my H/base gear. I only go mob/portable now.
I was having a Qso with 6/7 Hams y/day they all say it's not easy
working from Qth. The MFJ 1025/6 were mentioned but only drop
it S2/3 @ best @ £200! I've tried different Ant's & locations. It's the
Modern Urban design/development ie. Switch mode p/s Led lights
Solar panels etc.etc. Saying that I can still work 80/40/20 @ Qth.
With S 2-3 Qrm. You'll just have to try & see. But check ur Qrm first
or u could spend a lot of cash for nothing. Also it'll be difficult for
the next 18mths as we're in the low. Good luck Dx 73's Mike.

Hello everybody!
I still listen on 285 every now and then but I usually have a lot of QRN there and around all the frequencies around there. That band is often unusable for me because of the QRN. I get allsorts of strong high pitched signals which is ptobably the radar stations in the Adriatic that people have talked about. I live in SW 14 division. It would be good to have another Calling frequenct but that one is no good for me and probably a lot of other continental divisions.
73 everybody

When the band is open the radar is about 75kHz either side of 26285, so really it would be better if we could all agree to use 385. I think in the end we will have to do this as solar activity picks up because the radar is a constant pulse of 80W into ground plane antennas - it will propagate worldwide just as easiy as us calling on SSB. I could hear 14SW077 calling on 285 on Sunday when I was over the IoW, but he was listening on the frequency and we couldn't sort out a QSY so there was no QSO.

I'm yet to hear any Radar QRM on 26.285

Must just be lucky up here in the North East

Yes, QRN is a bit of an issue in the modest shack.
I have avidly been reading up on how to minimise it, alas I may need to blow up my local substation and run my shack on battery packs if I can't sort it out. Wink

I don't think I'll be very popular with the Electricity network or neighbours. I will have to keep reading...
