North West England, D-ATV Update

North West amateurs have been busy

recently, promoting D-ATV with a series

of talks to local clubs in NW England and

Northern Ireland. The next D-ATV talk

and demonstration, will be to the Bolton

Wireless Club in the New Year. 

To kick start local interest, an SR-Systems

23cm D-ATV TX has been loaned to Brian,

G3SMU, who lives 850 feet up Winter Hill

(IO83SO). Initial results are very encouraging

with many local stations able to receive D5

pictures with only 4W of TX. John, G7LLQ,

can receive D5 at around 35 miles with only

40mW of TX and Dennis, G3UVR, can

receive D5 D-ATV pictures, at more than

40 miles, with only 5mW of DVB-S video

being transmitted by G3SMU.

Other stations receiving D-ATV pictures

from G3SMU include:



Unsurprisingly, in the NW of England

there are many more stations with D-ATV

RX than TX but several are saving and

there are high hopes for a breakthrough

with the real-time enhancements for the

M0DTS/"Poor Man's D-ATV" project and

the latest French developments:


(M0DTS Live D-ATV)


(F1FAU Live D-ATV - Translated into English)

Local D-ATV TX hardware is based upon

a mixture of SR-Systems (23cm),

AGAF/DARC (70cm) and Dektec

(23&13cm) systems.

 - 70cm TX 437.250MHz, 2Ms, 7/8

(2.5 MHz wide)

 - 23cm TX 1255/1285MHz, 4Ms, 7/8 

 - 13cm TX 2320MHz, 4Ms, 7/8

 - Talkback on 144.750 MHz,

436.225 MHz and GB7NM-B (D-Star)

The use of AGAF/DARC boards on 70cm

has only been possible after some "inside

information" was kindly supplied by Ian,

G3KKD, detailing a hardware hack to

produce a low symbol rate/low bandwidth 

DVB-S transmission.

Finally, Albert, G4DHO, is very keen to

update the Stoke-on-Trent repeater,

GB3UD, with D-ATV in the near future.

doesn't seem to be there.

^ This weeks Joke:

Blonde Joke

From Spencer, N6IWY


Last year I replaced all the windows in my house with that
 expensive double-pane energy efficient kind, and today, I
 got a call from the contractor who installed them. He was
 complaining that the work had been completed a whole year
 ago and I still hadn't paid for them. Helllooo    
 ,............just because I'm blonde doesn't mean that I am
 automatically stupid. So, I told him just what his fast
 talking sales guy had told me last year, that in ONE YEAR
 these windows would pay for themselves! Helllooooo? It's
 been a year! I told him. There was only silence at the other
 end of the line, so I finally just hung up. He never called
 back. I bet he felt like an idiot.



Got a joke? send it to

ATN-CA Repeater Report





Repairs Needed for the ATN-CA Repeaters

1. Establish link from Mt. Potosi
Mt. Wilson:
Oat Mtn.:
1. Replace plastic wire ties with appropriate fasteners.
2. Tune 2.4 GHz link dipole for better SWR. It would be a

    good idea to sweep the 1200 MHz antenna at the same

    time as well.
Santiago Peak:
1. Remove KC6UQH's call and Palomar from the W6ATN

    repeaters ID's (late spring early summer 08 when the new controller is installed)
2. Look into weak signal getting into one of the inputs.

3. Find intermittent receive problem for link from Oat Mtn..(1/24/09)

4. Resolve problems with WiFi getting into receiver for Snow Peak

    & Point Loma (April 28, 2009)

5. Install new 5 GHz transmitter once it is repaired (3/10/09)

Snow Peak:

1. 2.4 Ghz input is operational but has audio problems due to

    receiver problems on the network hub.. July 23, 2009

2. The 1200 MHz output does work and you can watch.

Point Loma, W6RDF: No Repairs Needed/Fully Operational

   Trustee Robert Swain, KA4JSR

1. Off the air do to AC problems at the shack.

Mount Potosi:
