Well, I was really lucky with the weather last night for the 23cm UKAC. Clear starry night, and almost no wind on Longmynd Pole Bank G/WB-005.
40 QSOs, 9 Locator squares, ODX GI6ATZ at 291Km, my best on 23 to date, tantalizingly short of 300Km
GM4JTJ heard but not worked, I have yet to work GM, and an S2S would be especially nice.......?
FT817 plus SGLabs transverter, 2W output to hombrew 15 ele yagi. I made a new balun / feed arrangement, which is more robust than the first one, and reduced the SWR from around 2:1 to around 1.5:1.
Because of the low wind, I was able to stand the tripod on the topograph:
Thanks for all the contacts, several familiar SOTA callsigns noted.
