Hello Karl and Allan, thanks for the welcome, and a very good morning to you from a sunnyish Tubarao.
I’ve been off the air for a little while, so it’s a fresh start for me (silly lad sold most of his gear to move here didn’t he…). I still have some gear at home, so not a total loss, but equally not anything I would want to cart up a mountain without a horse.
Mmmm cookies, that’s cruel Karl I need to burn off the “food induced SOTA weight penalty”, though a couple wouldn’t hurt with a nice brew after climbing a mountain?). Good biscuits and tea that actually has flavor are lacking here.
I will head over to the Sotabeams site later on this morning and have a look around. I have to admit though, I enjoy making what I can and antenna building is part of the fun for me. Amazing contact into the Canary Islands there Karl. With the right propagation, anything is possible.
I will gladly take you up on that offer Allan. It will be great to get out in company and get an idea of what is involved. If you pick a summit based on my level of fitness right now, it will be a very flat hike :). Let’s say I need to get back into shape. I will email you ASAP.
Sorry I’m a little late replying this morning gents. My baby daughter decided that 3 am was a good time to be up and about. She finally gave in a 5.30. Add in our time difference right now (I’m 4 hours behind UK time), and I look positively rude.
Can anyone point me to the correct pixel size for the avatars used here? I’ve discovered it has to be square, but I’m not sure on the correct dimensions.
More later, 73, Ian 2W0IWM
