 +====== Radio Projects ======
  
 +There are a number of projects in the pipeline relating to amateur radio; these will be updated as they progress.
 +
 +===== Lab HF access =====
 +
 +Antennas tested thus far:
 +
 +  * TBD. Now we have a radio we can start looking at what Summerhall will let us install and what works best. Inv-V looking like the best option currently. It may be worth making a fan-IV to minimise matching losses.
 +
 +Coax drop options:
 +
 +  * TK is trying to arrange free cabling
 +  * Paracord dropped in conduit ready for cables
 +
 +Rig:
 +
 +  * William W has donated a Yaesu 857D.
 +
 +===== Hacklab ARC =====
 +
 +  * Call MM0RHL.
 +
 +===== Weekly Net =====
 +
 +Chris will throw out a call Weds evenings at 7PM UTC(TAI), so keep an ear out.
 +
 +===== "Radio Night" =====
 +
 +| Date | Theme | Comments |
 +|12/​02|HF|40m dipole tested with great success and some DX was worked.|
 +|26/​02|ARDF|A fox was built and successfully tested using a Baofeng UV-B5 > Nagoya SP45, Arduino|
 +|12/03|2m Yagi Build|Built some excellent tape measure yagis based on the plans [[http://​open-circuit.co.uk/​wp/​wb-yagi/​|here]]|
 +|26/​03|Cable Tracing|Identified the conduit for running cables ground-to-roof|
 +
 +===== Mini Maker Faire =====
 +
 +It may be too soon for this year but a full license holder could apply for a special event callsign and we could show the station to the public or use it for talk in (providing directions and help to those visiting). Setting up an ardf challenge within Summerhall on very low power would also be interesting. ​
 +
 +===== Other Projects =====
 +
 +  * [[sdr|SDR]]
 +  * RX/TX iGate - requires NoV - [[http://​aprs.fi/​info/​a/​2M0FFY|this is available]] for the time being for anyone who wants to mess about with APRS.
 +  * Repeater research - GB3ED may or may not be back soon.
 +  * WSPR/QRSS?
