Otherwise my activation of G/SE-004 tonight would have had to have been entered into the ‘activations you wish you could forget about’ thread…
In half an hour, I had 1 QSO in the log… 20m just about dead… 40m just about dead Only saved by 5 QSOs on 60m, where it sounded as if someone was playing with their new ‘Dyson S8-S9 Vacuum Cleaner’ (*)
Dodgy SWR with the ends of the link dipole actually about 2 inches off the ground So, many thanks to those who dug me out of the noise!
RRT seemed to think I was between 3-5km away from Butser Hill, but if anyone needs confirmation I was there, I can scan in a copy of the £3 parking ticket!! THREE QUID!!! That was like, 50p a QSO… Just about!
(*) Other Vacuum Cleaning devices are available…
(oh, just realised, 60m just about saved me on Leith Hill G/SE-002 on the 30th June (Although I also had 3 x 2m QSOs (and 1 x 20M one) there that would have quailfied it for me…)
