ευχαριστώ πολύ - SV2OXS Christos and SV2RUJ Stavros for this exiting 2 S2S QSO over 376 km !


Hi Erich!

The thanks goes to you, while you accepted the try for this achievement!
Indeed this is the first time in greek SOTA that we have a S2S QSO with Lesvos island on 2 m band! My summit SV/MC- 044 is near Veria city, with 1.801 m ASL. Very open horizon!!!
I am happy to hear that you are constructing your own yagi for 2 m!!! It means that it is very possible to have QSOs with HAMS from Katerini and Thessaloniki. I used my Yaesu FT-60 (5W) and my yagi 3 element antenna, which worked very well.
We hope to hear you and QSO you on 2 m band at your next activations.

73 Christos.

Hi Eric!
