In doing a little more research into band usage in G/LD land I noticed some of the 8 and 10 pointers have a very high percentage of 2m QSOs mode from them.
Is this thread from Nov 09 on UK frequencies still valid?
Also its hard to tell if 2m is FM or SSB. Can anyone shed light on what mode is favored on 2m in UK for SOTA activators? I assume its FM but that could be very naive and parochial!
Just trying to determine the right gear to bring and with the high volume of 2m wondered if a handheld 5w FM rig and J pole will be enough to qualify a peak mid week.
