I’ve not been out with the QO-100 kit for a few weeks as I’ve be doing my Beach riding lately, but Chris M0KPW wanted a trip out and it needed an airing.
We decided on Harter Fell as we have both not done it before.
I did not know it was as steep, I really must see if I can cut down the weight of my kit bag.
After aligning on the beacon, I tuned and found Andrew G4VFL/P working Phil G3TCU, so I worked Andrew for the S2S and then Phil.
I then aimed the dish to Andrew and we worked direct on 13cm’s, he then proceeded to get out his mirror and had a one way Heliograph contact over the 22 mile path.
I then went back to QO-100 to work G3VKV, G8BKE and DL6IAN.
Many thanks to all for a successful QO-100 activation, I’m hoping to be out Thursday or Friday to Stoney Cove Pike.
60cm’s Dish, POTY aerial, SG-Labs 2 watt Xvtr for 13cm’s up and a QO-100 to 2mtr RX converter, 2 x FT817’s and 8000mAHr Li-po.
