Apologies to the chasers, again! Both antenna problems (I seem to have the luck of a lab rat, when it comes to yagi antenna) and bad wx on G/SP-013 caused me to cut short my activation too. Glorious wx when I left my home QTH. Two and half hours later, I was very cold, with no gloves or suitable clothing, so made the short walk back to the car.
In about 90 minutes, managed just 4 contacts on 2m fm and 3 contacts on HF. Seems, even the magic wand that is the A-99 had forsaken me today…
