Visit on 22nd February fixed the 23cms analogue receiver - seems to have been a duff mains lead?

Also the rotator for 70cms beam and camera is now working - the rotator control is accessible via the web here . There are plans for DTMF control but it doesn't seem to work at the moment :-(

The mast camera is viewable by DTMF "776" on 432.750 MHz or Skype input. NOTE - you will need to deselect the mast camera "777" BEFORE trying to access on 70 or 23cms.

It is a 5 element yagi with an ADM special driven element and should not only give some gain but help null out the interference we have been suffering.

Transmit as normal on 70cms but you will need to check the beam direction before accessing on 70cms as it may not be pointing at you!

The streaming has been slow at HV recently.

This is because we switched over the internet connection at site from the landlord to a wireless wifi company’s connection who has just arrived on the mast and uses our shack / rack.

In return for rack space they offered us a connection with port 80 which we needed for the SDR which we also run from there. However, they put an initial upstream limit on it which has now been removed.
