Amateur Radio Village Logo

Hello, we're the "Amateur Radio Village", also known as the EMF Hams. We're a conglomeration of radio amateurs spread across the country that occasionally get together to play with radios, usually at EMF. Some of us have been going since 2012!

Anyone is welcome to join us or say hello, even if you're not a radio amateur you'll probably find something to talk to us about. Interests range from Real Ale to Eurovision, and occasionally we do some radio.

EMF Hams is registered as a club and has callsign Gx1EMF. We will be using it during EMF 2022 and welcome contacts! Our logbook for contacts will be here

Inhabitants

A non-exhaustive list of village inhabitants. Name can be whatever you prefer to be called by. If you're bringing something cool like a radio or something communally useful like a kettle stick it in the "Bringing" Column. We don't need to know about your socks

If you want your name added to the list but don't want to edit the wiki, give us a shout.

Local Comms

When you're in the site, these are good ways to contact other hams:

  • FM simplex: 433.425 NFM / 145.425 NFM (If in use by other Amateurs then please try 145.450 / 433.450)
  • FM repeater: GB3MF is a temporary 70cms analogue repeater which will be run during EMF 2022 by M0TRY. It will be on Output frequency: 430.8 MHz, RX Frequency: 438.4 MHz, CTCSS 118.8 if you want to program a radio in advance
  • DMR repeater: GB7NQ (Northern Quarter) is a 70cms DMR repeater run by Mal M0VNA from Maker Space in Newcastle. Details for programming a code plug in advance are here
  • 2m FM APRS: There will be an 2m APRS digipeater which will support messaging and igating to/from APRS-IS (as well as any other positioning/messaging systems that people want to bring. Talk to M0PLL!)
  • 70cm LoRA APRS: MB7ULG run by Mal M0VNA from Maker Space in Newcastle. details here
  • Pagers: MB7ULG will be a 70cm POCSAG pager transmitter attached to DAPNET. Also run by Newcastle Maker Space, details here
  • Phones: We will probably have many phones in our marquee, both on the EventPhone DECT/SIP and also CuTEL. Contact details for them to follow. If someone has a working fax machine, let us know!

We'll be trying to link as many of these together as possible. Certainly the 2m and 70cm APRS, hopefully with messaging interop between APRS and DMR and also pagers. If we get time, we want to build a phone patch between the site phone system and FM simplex.
