Helicopters and more

JOTA a Sucess

JOTA was a success from the radio point of view , if, unfortunately, there were less Scouts than there were pizzas!

Our very full time team of G0SKA, 2EØSUR, G4EBY and me plus a load of other helpers whose call signs I can't recall at the moment got ourselves to the site for 8am on the saturday and built 2 masts and 3 stations. An HF 6-20 with the hex beam, a 40 & 80m on the club mast and a 2M vertical and yagi on top of that.

It is far to say that the day went well radio wise, maybe not so well for poor Charlie who I found out late in the day was being blatted out by the hex beam. To counter that we are going to look at a band pass filter setup. Hopefully Dave will be able to find some that we might be able to make….more electrical witchcraft.

So what did we work…..check out the GB4MTE QRZ page for more pictures. and we sent love and kisses to ML&S for providing us with log books which will be available for further club contests.
