Post 2m lift on
Big lift on 2m now! (21.00 hrs)
Guy from Guernsey talking with a guy in Madenhead on an 145.60 analogue repeater here in Manchester, not sure where the repeater is but not local. Strangely SSB quiet here.

Agreed, spent the early years of my ham life on 2m SSB and CW, it was the most rewarding experience in many yrs hamming.
