Just came in from EU:
According to the RSGB News for Sunday 1st September 2002, comes the following
Beacon News. Webmasters of Beacon Lists may want to update there Lists, Etc.
Kent Microwave Beacons Closed Down Permanently
We reported two weeks ago that the GB3NWK microwave beacons, located near
Orpington in Kent, were off the air. We have now been informed that the two
beacons, which operated on 1296.81 and 2320.85MHz, will not be returning to
service. Changes to the status of the site where the beacons are located has
meant that it is no longer suitable for this purpose. Therefore, after 20
years of operation on 23-centimetres and 16 years on 13-centimetres, these
beacons are now closed down permanently.
W2UHI: did NOT get on the moon this morning.. 23cm activity has been on the
increase over the past few years.
KA0Y: looking for updated directory.. was on the moon this morning and only work
K5WXN: been tweaking up the system.. working on preamps.. how is 70cm these days?
System does not seem to be performing all that well .. needs to update
directory and will send info.. Dan feels that 70cm activity is down a bit
and seems to be more European activity than US activity.. 70cm activity
may be down due to some stations moving to 23cm and not returning to 432.
