WB-002 - Brown Clee
Firstly must say that the WX made today superb and the radio was a handy bonus!!!
The climb up was straight forward, however choosing a site to pitch the fishing pole where QRM (from phone masts) would not be an issue, was a little tricky!!
However the both the 4m Slim Jim and 2m MFD went up in a flash and I was ready to TX.
Very Active on the usual bands such as 2m SSB and FM, however the highlight of the day was the activity on 4m FM. This band has performed so well over the weekend and it would appear that interest is picking up on the 70Mhz band. With the Wouxun HT and the Home Brew Slim jim, (courtesy of Summitsbase,org.uk and GW8OGI) DX was successfully worked! To anyone reading this I suggest giving 4m a go!!!
Has anybody operated 4m SSB whilst /P, if so what antennas do you go for? Also does anybody know when the winter period ends?
