An unedited video shot in windy and very cold conditions between 4pm and 6pm on Saturday 8th Jan 2011, at Roper Hill, Sheffield, IO93EI. Gordon G0EWN/P, shown here was testing with Barry G8AGN/P located 87km away at IO93PW37 near Pocklington in East Yorkshire. Two way contact was eventually established to set a new UK lightwaves record of 87km, beating the pre-existing one of 76km set up in 2003 by G0MRF and G8LSD. There are some dark periods in this video due to lack of daylight(!) but you should just listen for the audio of Barry's red lightwave transmission coming through at Q5 S2. Three watt Luxeons were used at each end, focussed with fresnel lenses. More information on G8AGN's exploits at lightwave frequencies can be found at: http://www.barry-chambers.staff.shef....
