I recently re-acquired My Yaesu FT-100D from my friend Josh M0DIT
with the intention of taking it mobile to use in and around Britain
with my new multi band antenna I purchased from LAR Communications
A WAtsON Multi-Ranger-9 HF-UHF Mobile whip.
There is a place just of the A169 a mear 12 miles as the crow might fly
called " THE HOLE OF HORCUM"
There is a car park there so it was an ideal place to
park and try out the Yaesu in anger.
My garmin GPS informed me that I was 911ft ASL (WOW)
One of the Information boards there
I had texted Adam M6AXL to see if he could hear me on 80Mtrs
and he said he did not have an antenna for that frequency and to try 20 mtrs
I couldn't hear Adam on twenty , so I called him on my local repeater
GB3TP.The repeater was giving me a signal 7 to 8 from that location
VHF is favourable from that location .
Then all of a sudden , someone was calling CQ on 20 meters
I Then Proceeded over to Whitby for some Fabulous Fish & Chips .
After obtaining some rock & toffee We then drove up to the Abbey Car Park
to try and contact Simon 2E0HTS the following video is the result.
I am in the process of putting my 6 2 70 and 23cm antennas upon the chimny. My next blog will cover this
Thank you for reading
73 for now
