@g4yss. John, here’s a photo of this weekend’s setup for the September 2m contest. Same place as VHF FD but we only had 7 williing victims for the ensuing monsoon conditions on the Sunday.
2x 17ele long Yagis (5 lambda long). We’ve been playing with some “how high should my Yagi be” software and based on the ground slope for our site and so had them lower than you’d expect. No shortage of F, ON and PA stations to be worked when they got around to beaming North. In the evening conditions improved a little and we worked OZ with ease.
The SOTA angle? The hill behind the tents is the Knockendurrick and Bengray GM/SS-238 is 2km beyond it. Also I was going to bag Pibble Hill GM/SS-232 on Sunday, but the biblical rain levels disuaded me of that idea.
