144MHz UKAC 7th July Contest AR Section
Last night was the monthly 144 MHz UK Activity Contest which started at 19.00 utc until 21.30 utc. During the contest I made 27 QSO the furthest being 289 miles away and was G4JQN- Jerry, who is located at Westbury in Wiltshire. The band was a full of QSB and to the South East there was some QRN, despite this I still managed to enjoy myself on the band. As usual I used the homemade loop (IOIo) and 30 watts from the FT-847, a big thank you goes to all stations worked and good to get you all in the log.

After the Contest I joined Adam – 2E0LXA and Phil – M1PAC on 20m and then on to 40m before it was time to pull the plug. Next weeks contest is on 433 MHz, I am interested in finding out how well the new 10 Element Yagi will perform? I hope it is better than the 70 cms half of the IO loop that I have chopped off too mount the new Yagi, watch this space for either lots of cussing or a big smile.
