Whatho Fellow Cliftonaires,
Following a very disappointingly damp and cool August ( especially in the east of the UK) summer has ebbed away, the equinox having passed we are sliding into autumn.
Will it bring improved radio conditions on the lower bands? We have yet to see.
Recent solar disturbances have taken their toll on 80m & 40M such that daytime inter-G contacts have proved very difficult on 40M, at the same time 80M has suffered from extremely deep QSB and high noise levels.
After monitoring both bands over the recent days I feel that 80M has the edge on 40M for daytime short skip.
Therefore this coming Sunday 11th October the new season of Clifton Country Club Net will commence at 1500hrs BST on or near 3.690 Mhz.
For those with 60M capability I will be also listening/calling on 5.335 Mhz for a “pre-net” sked at 14.45 Hrs BST.
How was your summer? Why not drop in and share your experiences with the crew this Sunday afternoon!
Hope to catch you on the wireless!
