Have just come down from Allermuir Hill - it was pretty windy up there. Could only get the 5-ele 2m beam up by keeping it low and holding it in the right direction. Tried a few calls on SSB but no joy.
Fortunately there were enough locals around to get the (one!) point. Managed 3 on 2m FM and 1 on 2m AM, all using the short helical on the FT-817. It’s worth remembering in that area that there are a number of locals that listen on 145.800 AM. I see it’s the only AM contact in GM-land on the database!
Didn’t even attempt the HF dipoles - would have had wire tangled round everything.
PS Many thanks to GM0AXY for the spot.
