G5TM’s 145 ALIVE 2m event is back it is shaping up to be better than ever!
This Saturday’s event (2023-04-29) takes place between 13:00 and 15:00 BST. Radio Amateurs will be setting up stations in high places up and down the UK ready for other amateurs to call in and help ’light-up’ the 2m band.
This time around there are more hill top stations taking part in the event than ever before. Last time over 300 stations took part.
At the time of writing, the following control stations are taking part:
|145.550||North East Scotland||MM0EFI (Fraser)|
|Kent||M0VRI (Jonathan) & M7ELM (Emily)|
|South-East Wales||2W1BUF (Greg), MW7BUF (Tom), GW0HKU (Rob) & MW0KKR (Tom)|
|145.475||Cornwall (Launceston)||G8ROC (Club station)|
|145.450||North-East England||M0EVK (Graeme), G4TIR (Keith) & G8KPD (Brian)|

|East Sussex||M0ABT (Stuart)|

Each of these control stations will refer the calling stations to each other in order to generate as many QSOs as possible.
The control stations will all be using Frequency Modulation (FM) and vertical polarisation. Amateurs in many places in the UK will hopefully be able to reach many of the above listed stations.
