“Taking Amateur Radio to new heights” Nick G0HIK and myself G4VFL made a S2S QSO via the Oscar 100 satellite. We were on G/LD-051 and G/LD-049 so had an easy talk back on 2m to coordinate our effort. It worked quite well despite the low power. We then went on to qualify the summits with further QSOs. G4VFL’s kit Tx > FT-817 -> SG-Labs -> Patch Ant -> 50cm dish Rx 50cm Dish Octagon LNB -> G0MRF converter -> FT-817. Nick was similar with 2 FT-817 to separate Tx/Rx. We didn’t work any regular chasers but Douggie G7CDA had a grandstand seat watching the WEB SDR https://eshail.batc.org.uk/nb/ There were no visitors during the activation, which was surprising on Holme Fell in the centre of the Lakes.
The picture shows even greater hights can be activated in the future.
