Just about to land on the Isle of Wight. It’s overcast and occasionally drizzly, but not cold. On the air from the hills about 12.30. Will be trying to coax my T2LT down to 26285 as well as on the T5 etc as there is a sensible attempt to re-establish it as an alternative to an overcrowded (and El Commandante-ridden) T5.

Off again for another bash from Luccombe Down. On the air about 11.15 for the Pegasus group net on 27405 and then Sid’s net on 34 FM this afternoon. Shouting on 26285 as well through the day on my new T2LT tuned specially for Low band.

Hi Stu & Mike. When there is some decent prop to UK I will listen on 285 as I would really like to get rid of the Alicante madman! We could always go back to a T5 freq or stay around 285. Makes no difference to me.

I can just about cover from 285 up to above the T5 on my new 5/8 so that makes things a bit less of a faff than having to retune or switch between 2 T2LTs. Coming up soon will be a bi-square to go on the 10m pole which should also be good bandwidth-wise but that will need pretty calm weather because of the drag of the wire and guys. Fortunately Bank Holiday Monday looks pretty good for testing.

The T5 has been a zoo lately with 30PJ05, Commandante, and the "Italy Oscar" nutter but I do see more reports of people calling and making contacts on the Low band. I am surprised more UK groundwave nets don't relocate down there from the Mids or the T5 region because when the band is open they don't have a hope in hell of getting anywhere.

Hi. Stu./ Ian.

Listening now on .285/.430 & 40m. The 40/80m seem to be the
atm. Was listening to Tim's net on Mon. Yes I think it would be a
Good idea to move from .285 nxt yr. I'm in favour of 26.430 the
Old CO ( Canadian Outlaws ) freq. I very rare use T5 now. Always
on S/lows or 40/80. 73's for now Mike. Ps Stu R U on I.O.W. Sun?

The radar on 285 was very strong most of yesterday (I couldn't get over the Island on Sunday). Excellent day of short skip with contacts in Scotland, Ireland and as far south as Sheffield. Some of the shortest skip distances I've ever come across and a welcome thing too - I always seem to be on at the wrong times lately for catching it.

The bi-square needs a bit more work to find a good match, and it needs to be made lighter. I was only using quite heavy insulated wire and some dodgy home-made 450-ish Ohm open wire, but I think I've proved the concept to myself and I'll make up a properly-working version.

On the ferry just pulling up at Ryde. On the air shortly after 10 on the T5 and 26285. Gorgeous weather on the south coast!
