Equipment used: Yaesu FT-847, 50 watts. Antenna – IOIo home made 1 element/loop.

The Contest started off quiet at first but livened up after ½ an hour or so. Lots of QSB was present throughout the full 2 ½ hours but I still managed to do quite well calling CQ as well as a lot of hunting up and down the band.
Somewhere around the ½ way mark Louise – M3TLL presented me with some freshly made and deliciously still warm jam dumplings which went down very well. Thanks goes to all Stations worked and see you all in the 144MHz UKAC next month.

    Hi Phil, Not sure as yet about the 70cms contest maybe hear you?

    Might be playing on HF instead as last night I worked CO8LC and VK6MV both 5/9 on 20m. There were lots of good sigs coming in last night.

    Hope to catch you soon, best 73
