Oops! Made a bit of a mistake on my last Posting in that unless your registered with us on GM13 ye canny see the pics. Doh!
So knowing how you will all being waiting in great anticipation I'll add a few pics here.
GM4COX's kit used on GM/SS-158. The SG transveter running about 1W O/P and 8 x 1.2v NiMh battery pack are both located in the blue bag. The transverter is being driven by my Vx8 (in the black bag hanging from the fence) running about 700mW on 432MHz. The aerial is the pcb 4el supplied by SG Labs (a SOTA friendly - 21el is in the making) suitably modified to just slip over my SOTA pole.
This is Paddy MM6IPO's set-up (note the 4el connected straight to the transverter) in his high flat location in Glasgow - IO75TV. Because of Paddy's licence limitations on 13cms we worked crossband 57-13cms/57-2M - FM. And not a LOS - 60Km path. Amazing!
And this is a shot of my LOS S2S contact with Jim MM0GLM on GM/CS-001 (just over 100km) 59 - FM both ways and superb FM quality which are now becoming used to on 13cms.
All-in-all both contacts were a great success on a superb day to play radio
Till the next time.
