ISLE OF MAN EXPEDITION22/07/2010 * 26/07/2010
Mi interï¿½s por la Radio y por la naturaleza hacen que una gran mayorï¿½a de fines de semana salga a disfrutar de misdos aficciones.
Iam interested in Radio Amateur and nature, so most ofweekendsI go out to enjoy Radio Amateur and Nature.
En la mayorï¿½a de mis operaciones suelo salir en QRP 5W. En estas fotos uso 3 antenas, una vertical de hilo con 3 radiales en
Sloper, un dipolo para Qrp de 3 bandas 7, 40 y 10 metros en horizontal y otra vertical monobanda, todas de hilo.
Most of my operations are on QRP 5W. In these pictures I use 3 antennas, a vertical -wireantenna with 3 radial in Sloper, one dipole
for Qrp of 3 band 7, 40 and 10 meters in horizontal, and one vertical antenna monoband, all of them of wire.
OPERATING FROM THE HMS BELFAST SHIP IN LONDON FROM THE ROYAL NAVAL AMATEUR RADIO SOCIETY-LONDON GROUP.
On September First 1939, Germany invades Poland. United Kingdom together with Australia and New Zealand gave three days to Germany for leaving Poland. On September Third 1939, it started one of the bloodiest and horrible events of the world wide history: The Second World War had begun.
The HMS Belfast Ship was part of the British Royal Navy in its fight for trying to blockade Germany. Together to The HMS Edinburgh was known like Royal Navyï¿½s Town- class cruisers. On the twenty first of November, at 1.00 a.m., it was seriously damaged by a German magnetic mine, and twenty one men were hurt. At the end of 1942, it was back at the fight, and in 1943 participated in the Battle of North of Cape. On June Sixth 1944 it took part in the invasion of Normandy, and it was one of the first ships in firing to the Germany position
Then, it participated in Korean War. Between 1959 and 1962 it operated in the East, and in 1963 left Singapore and came back to United Kingdom.
The HMS Belfast Ship is thought to be one of the most important ships in the Royal Naval History of the United Kingdom. Nowadays, it stays in the Thames, in London, near London Bridge, in one of the nicest zones of London. It hosts several organisations, between them: The Royal Naval Amateur Radio Society (RNARS) who operates from the Bridge Wireless Office with the callsign : GB2RN.

The RNARS was founded in 1960, and the next year will be its 50 anniversary. It has been associated to the HMS Belfast since 1973: RNARS London- HMS Belfast- Group.
At present, the HMS Belfast Ship hosts a museum , it is open to the public, so anyone who is interested can visit it.

So, in my last visit to London I decided to spend some of time in Naval History and, of course, in my main hobby: the radio amateur. We must not forget that the radio and wireless communication are two essential tools in the maritime navigation; and it was Marconi who, in the beginning of the last century, from Cornwall (England), performed the first wireless communications with the ships that appeared by the Southwest of England and that came from all over the world (though this deserves an especial mention in other occasion)
I contacted to Marc (G0TOC) and Thomas (G0PSE) from the Royal Naval Amateur Radio Society- HMS Belfast London, so I agreed my first visit to the HMS Belfast Ship and the shack room.
The shack room is placed in the called : ï¿½Bridgen Wireless Officeï¿½. It uses the callsing: GB2RN. All signals addressed to the ship were received here , they were logged and duplicated; and showed to the Captain or officers concerned. From here, as well, messages were sent to the exterior. The main Wireless Telegraphy was distributed all over the ship, but was keyed only from this room, and so they communicated with ships of other fleet, aircrafts or shore wireless stations worldwide
The GB2RN room contains several transceivers including: an Icom IC-746, a Kenwood TS-870S and Yaesu models; FT-990, FT-847 and FT-767.
My visit to the HMS Belfast Ship and the shack room was really wonderful. We were welcomed by Marc. I had the opportunity of operating from the shack room (using the GB2RN), in others words, from the same room where years ago very important messages were received!!. In addition to, I got two commemorative operator certificates (thanks to Tom, G0PSE).
Marc and Julio in the shack room.
I would like to encourage every radio user who is planning to visit London to spend some time in the HMS Belfast Ship and the shack room. I think this is a magnificent opportunity that the RNARS London Group- HMS Belfast gives to us, the radio users.
My thanks to Marc (G0TOC) for his time; to Thomas (G0PSE) for the certificates, and to every member of the RNARS for their work.

Antena Cometa, KITE ANTENNA: 14-marzo 2010
Para esta antena he utilizado una cometa de 3 metros de largo, un balum 10:1 y cable de bobinar motores.
La antena esta sobre unos 100 metros de altura y aproximadamente 85 metros de cable.
Las pruebas que he realizado han sido con un yaesu FT 817 y 1 Watio con muy buenos reportes de seï¿½al.
En referente a la cometa decir que es una cometa estatica.
Con muy buenos resultados en las bandas de 40, 80 y 160 metros. Algo barato y muy muy entretenido.
ANTENA GLOBO DE HELIO: Martes 16 marzo 2010
