Well, after Google took me a silly way through the Gwydir Forest I arrived at GW/NW-040 with insufficient time to activate on 10m ahead of the 2-m contest. A few calls on 6m with the VX7 and its rubber duck were unanswered (I wonder just how inefficient that antenna is).
My QSO rate on 2m was not spectacular. I heard one F station, and worked well down south and to GM, with one GI logged in the final hour. We’ll see.
With the 2-m beam off the mast I put up my 10-m GP and straight-away worked S2S with M0OAT on G/NP-028, adding another call sign and another multiplier to my tally.
10m was well open to South America. I heard Brazil x 3, Uruguay x 2 and 1 from Argentina. My 5W, with the FT817 playing up by now, didn’t make it though.
