Post 70MHz UKAC reminder.
That very rare animal, a 70MHz UKAC. :D
Even FM gets used. :)

On 29 January the 70MHz UK Activity Contest takes place from 2000 to 2230UTC.
Using all modes the exchange is signal report, serial number and locator.

Cheers

Tony

weather / wind stopped me. My 4 ele yagi was at head height as my tower is too lightweight for the wind. I failed to cut it. Got Tony but at a 5/2, so gave up.

It was good to work you, even though it was a real struggle. :)

Propagation was as bad as the weather.

Deep QSB, lots of noise and, although the activity was good, nothing of interest to note.

No GI, GM or continentals worked here.

Despite all, the usual good signal from G3PYE/P but few stations worked at over 200km.

I ended up with 49 contacts, just three countries, 11 locators and an ODX of 295km to G4ZTR in JO01kw.

Despite all that it was great fun.

Cheers

Tony

Translation:
Our little gang of men, (presumably group of fellow amateurs), have achieved 7th place in the contest.
I am very pleased with that, as I am still a virtual newcomer to all of this.
