Excellent results. So, what kind of 2m antenna did you use?

“5 Elli”, she’s a DK7ZB 28 Ohms design, boom length 1.5m.

Well done Pom, congrats! Nice set up. You made the best of the condx on a SOTA. Sorry I missed you as I was in Cardiff, Wales, Friday until today. I checked the band tonight after seeing your message on the 2m FT8 frequency and worked DL1KDA (JO30) and DF1JC (JO31) (2140-2145z). Sadly, unlike you they were not SOTA.

And they were not SSB, Phil. :wink:
It seems that no dedicated SOTA chaser made their way to my log. I self-spotted with “beaming UK” and GI4KSO later on proofed by spotting me that my signal was received on the Isles.
