The Irish Radio Transmitters Society’s Brendan Trophy for the first two-way transatlantic amateur communication on 2m has gone unclaimed for years. A new attempt to span the Atlantic is underway. Operating as VC1T on 144.155MHz, the signal from the Brendan Quest team using the FSK441 transmission mode was heard and decoded by John Regnault, G4SWX, in Suffolk on 6 July at 1341UTC. The stations continued to try to make it a complete two way contact for something over the next four hours but nothing was heard from G4SWX or any European station.
The Hurricane Watch Net (HWN) is preparing to activate for Hurricane Arthur Saturday, July 5, at 1100 UTC, on 14.325 MHz. These plans are subject to change. The storm is making its trek toward Nova Scotia, and the Net will be gathering ground-truth weather data for the National Hurricane Center in Miami and the Canadian Hurricane Centre in Halifax. Amateur Radio stations in the affected area should be aware of the storm and be prepared to operate from a place of safety, as necessary.
