It’s been a couple of years since our last radio festival. Finally, we have been able to arrange it for this year. We are lucky enough to be using a radio friendly campsite run by Andy GW6JSO who kindly runs the repeater GB3CN connected to HUBNet.
This years HUBFest will be Tuesday 31st May to Sunday 5th June. Pant Y Meilion Campsite in Wales.
You can book your pitch directly via the website here:
Come and join us for a day a night, 2 nights or even the full 5 nights. We would love to see as many of you as possible! There are pitches for tents, caravans’ campers etc.
For those of you who enjoy a bit of glamping there are cabins available. https://welshcampsite.co.uk/cabins.htm
Simon 2E0MRS will be there with his amazing military radio vehicle, the Plessey Vixen https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RpWKxhDF35c&t=905s
Antenna building and testing
We will be antenna-building and testing throughout the week. Building various antennas including an antenna for 4 meters. G7RPG will be leading on building a 4m Slim Jim antenna made with 400ohm ribbon cable using the M0UKD design.
Founded in May 2016 by Steve M0HOY with the mandate of increasing radio activity through coordinating the linking of Repeaters and Simplex Gateways across the UK that in recent years had fallen into disuse.
Heading into its 6th year in May, HUBNet has pushed the boundaries of multimode Amateur Radio communications; with a great deal of work by Peter G7RPG and the support of many others, HUBNet has rapidly become the largest multimode AllStar communications platform based in the UK.
AllStar (Asterisk) (Jim Dixon WB6NIL) is a powerful yet easily configurable open source PBX Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) system that enables radio transceivers to connect with each other via the internet.
AllStar (Asterisk) along with HBLink & DVSwitch (Court N0MJS, Jonathan G4KLX, Steve N4IRS & Mike N4IRR) has enabled us to transcode from analogue FM, and multiple digital modes including, DMR, Digital WiresX and D-Star.
