Thank Andy, that was a little frustrating.
So last evening was a test of our individual station set up and transverter tweaks. As you can see from the pics I am yet to mount my 13cm Bi-Quad.
As for antennas I have a 20el yagi almost complete, that will help with paths greater than 100 km, but for now we are just testing the waters.
Looking ahead to Sunday, we are planning to have 4 possibly 5 2.4 GHz equipped stations on summits for a 13cm S2S Party. In the coming months we expect to move further way from Canberra and start testing 100+ km paths, that will be exciting!!
I forgot to mention in my earlier post, Al VK1RX joined the 2.4 GHz chase working his SG-Lab 13cm transverter from his home QTH. Thanks Al great work!
Pics of the 13cm Yagi… work in progress. Top 23cm below 13cm.
