Hi everybody…names Denny(M3HSJ) and my home QTH is Stockton on Tees. Been an amateur for a few years now and I’m looking for a way to reignite not so much a dwindling passion just one that has taken a back seat of late…After reading about SOTA in this months RADCOM I thought…“Hey this sounds interesting” the fact I love the great outdoors (I enjoy mountainbiking and hill walking) and radio helps me combine 2 interests in one…
So the only query I’ve got is this…I’ve got a Handheld Yaesu FT60-E a) is this acceptable for SOTA operation and b) what sort of antenna do you Ladies and Gents suggest to use with this radio?
I know I’ll need some sort of external powersource and I’m looking at a sealed lead acid unit as they’re pretty small and relatively cheap.
Thanks in advance for your help
