Post Portable Operation Tonight 05/08/2011 . 2M
Hi All

Bit of a heads up, Planning a 2M Activity evening tonight, From IO92BA or near about, trying out a new 9 ele Tonna I picked up today.

So if anyone is around, Plans are 2M SBB horizontal mixed with FM Vertical from 7pm till around 11pm, depending on activity, Beaming in different directions

Interested to see how many stations will be monitoring SSB this evening

Thanks

I'll be around, 4M activity permitting.
Although, at 140km, it's hardly a test of anything. :)

Cheers

Tony

Nice to make the contact, just made it! Lots of QSB. But you made it into Cornwall :D

Just had another chat with Ian (2E1RDX) he was 5/5 most of the time and Lee (M3CPY) 5/2.

John. IO70op.

Dan,

Nice to make the contact, but yes it was hard going!

I also use the IC-7000 in the car and find its not the best on VHF/UHF SSB.

From home I was using a IC-275H @ 100W.

Cheers,

John.
