In reply to MM0FMF:
I think you’ll find it’s the 5 channels of 16GW erp each on 24cms that
does the damage more so than the antenna polarization. That’s 80GW erp
for those who count slow! Enough to upset most electronic devices.
Tsk, thats multiplying, not counting!
I wonder where you have found that out, Andy? From time to time I have had a casual google concerning the site but never came up with much. Its our closest SOTA summit and direct LoS to the home QTH, and despite it being a bit rough and ready, I really like the hill. I’d be interested to know more about the installation…
As regards upseting most electronic devices, I can remember being up the many years ago with Geoff 2E0BTR when numeric pagers still had a place in the world. The unit in question was on 153MHz IIRC and would start going off as though it were receiving a message when we approached the two “roundey-roundey-radars”.
