Me and M0JDK will try to knock off the 5 TW summits this Saturday. We have to drive a good few miles now to activate some summits and because of this we try to get as many in a day as we can to make the trip worthwhile.
I can’t decide if I need to take a 9 ele beam or a 5 ele sota beam, I been thinking some of these summits must be unique for some chasers and we want to give everyone a fair crack at the whip. We will only be on 2m SSB (horizontal) FM by request only
I am thinking of taking a 9 ele (horizontal) and up to 50 watts of power which should give chasers a chance without being to heavy, idealy however I think a 5 ele will be better to carry. What are the summits like and do you think I will need a 9 ele to push the signal south. Is there anyone that wants us to go vertical as I will have to make a mod to the 9 ele antenna mount to do this if I take it.
