One of its beams is South East (135 degrees) and should give you some reports in Belgium and Netherlands in good conditions.
You can see it on beaconspot at:-
UK Microwave Group - Beacon Spots.
View on www.beaconspot.eu.
The 70,0 MHz - 70,5 MHz band has been allocated to Amateur Radio use on secondary basis and included in the National Frequency Plan as published by the Malta Communications Authority (MCA) on 13 Feb 2015.
There are quite a few local stations interested in being active on 4 m.
Elle est organisée par l’association ORPB en liaison avec le Lannion Tregor Communauté et la Cité des Télécoms.
Enfin deux stations seront actives sous les indicatifs TM8PB et TM16EME.
Configuration 4 will be used:
- ARISS antenna 43
- Frequency 2395 MHz
- Symbol rate 2.0 MS/s
Ground stations F6DZP and IK1SLD will receive the signals and stream the video over the BATC server.
The video is expected to be received during 5 minutes.
This will mark the end of the Blank Transmissions.
No decision has been taken yet on the future use of Ham Video. We will keep you informed on any progress.
