Aeroplanes and Radio

Last week was spent holidaying on the Welsh island of Anglesey. During our stay I was able to watch many aircraft come and go from RAF Valley which was right next to our campsite.

I received quite a lot of interesting transmissions from the comms tower around 128MHz.Using my mobile station (FT-857) and numerous monoband antennas I was able to work many stations on HF and VHF. Amazingly I even worked as far back as my home QTH on 2m FM and had a contact with fellow CRAG member 2E0XLG Chris.

Here are the stations I worked from my mobile during our stay:

UA1AFT VASSILY 5/9 + 20M
YU1HFG 5/8 20M
C4SV 5/9 20M
UW1GZ 5/9 20M
UR5ZVP 5/9 20M
HA1TNX 5/9 40M
GI4MNA/P 2M FM 5/9
GB5BOO 2M FM 5/3
2E0XLG/P 2M FM 5/5
2E0MAS 2M FM 5/0 WIGAN
G0PZO/P 2M FM 5/5 CUMBRIA
M0OTE/M 2M FM 5/9
GW0EWN/P 2M FM 5/3
2E0EJF 2M FM 5/5
M0GGR/M 2M FM 5/5

All these contacts were great but as you can see, Dudley the greyhound was not quite so impressed!
