Ok so not quite SOTA, but I have permission to operate as a pedestrian mobile Special Event Station again this year, this time during the 12mile long Lions Mid-Summer Walk, between Doncaster town center and the town of Thorne, on the 26th June (SES callsign to be confirmed)
For HF the radio will be my PRC-320 and its 2.4m whip antenna. I’d like to try and maximise the number of inter-G contacts, which would normally suggest 40m, but also try and get the best balance with antenna efficiency.
What are peoples thoughts on band? Im still leaning towards 40m, and hoping the SES callsign and a bit of judicious advertising pulls in the QSOs, but am open to ideas!
