ATV repeaters off-air during ATV contests|
On request of the VERON VHF commitee, it has been decided to take the
ATV repeaters off-air during ATV contests. This will prevent the
available frequency bands from being fully occupied by the repeaters
ATV contests will be held during the 2nd full weekend in March, July,
September and December. Always from Saterday 18:00 Z to Sunday 12:00 Z.
Digital ATV is gaining momentum
Some time ago, a digital ATV initiative has been launched by Uwe Kraus.
In co-operation with the university of Wuppertal (Germany), a set of
PCBs has been developed, that can be pre-ordered.
At the moment these PCBs are in production and the first results are
expected soon. Should you have forgotton to pre-order, the VERON
department Eindhoven has ordered some extra units, just in case.
