What a bad time for my 817 to let go.
There I was having fun on Dirrington Great Law, Sarah was making time to leave noises so I thought I’ll see if 60m will play as it was rubbish earlier. Reconnected the links plug the mic back in and .
And nothing. Zilch. No power out. Switch to CW and the same. Bang the 2m rubber duck and on FM, nothing. Nothing on any band.
It just failed to proceed. No sparks, no smoke, no fuss. Just no RF. The HF antennas are resonant and have been used countless times. So I’ll put it down to one of those things. Obviously working both Tom and Roy on the key on both summits was too much for it!
So no trip out tomorrow and if I can’t get a finals board sharpish from Yaesu and fairly miserable ISW coming up.
