Post 23cm beacons ?
Just trying out my new aerials for 144, 432 and 1296.

On 1296 the only beacon I can hear is GB3MHZ - does anyone know if the GM 23cm beacons are working ? There's a note about GB3ANG being on soak test but what about EDN and CSB ?

Thanks Tim

G8GIW licensed in 1972 (C&G RAE), then G4WIM in 1984 (12 wpm CW test), then KT6UK in 2000 (USA Extra Class), now safely back in the UK and retired early (Google bought the company I was working for !)

Hi Tim
There's a few beacons about on 23cms ...have a look on beaconspot website's pretty well kept up to date .
A few of the fm repaeaters operate in beacon mode and are horizontal polarised .

Try the stoke repeater on 1297.075 ....mind you that is vertical .
Isle of Wight beacon on 800
Dunstable beacon on 890
GB3FM in Surrey on 1297.050
GB3NO ...Norwich fm / beacon on 1297.000 horizontal
GB3USK...sometimes on during daylight's solar / wind power on 1296.870

I could hear these all the time with mast head pre amp in and 44 ele wimo yagi
Unfortunately just sold all my 23cms gear as moving to Spain .

Log on to microwave on4kst microwave chat there's a few people your way ...G3UVR Liverpool way springs to mind

As I say beaconspot is pretty well up to date
Hope that helps
