1st activation done
6m fishing pole
Homemade 2m ladder line
UV5R dual band 2m/70cm - around 5w.
Today me and Mrs M0VAZ headed up the Great Orme in glorious sunshine, arriving at about 10:00
I started to get setup with the 2m ladder line antenna on a 6m pole, while attaching the pole to the fence post I heard a station on 2m GW8NZP/p. I connected the antenna and no signal.
Went back to the antenna on the radio and the signal came back again.
I can only assume it was to do with the radio masts on the hill, the rest of the day was on the radios own antenna.
I did make a mistake in spotting the wrong summit, I spotted as GW/NW-076. I blame the notes in the notebook, that was a summit I was looking up info on! This error was spotted by 2W0AMN - Thanks Chris.
So to all the people who I made contact with, you might need to alter the summit info when you log.
