29th December 2015 - 70MHz UKAC

4W Yaesu FT817 and transverter. 4 Ele Yagi from IO91OQ
Strange night. Worked everything I could hear with lots of activity in North and North West. Should have perhaps pointed S more to try and pick up IO90 although by all accounts activity and score were low throughout. It got pretty windy up there and a new electric fence causing S8 noise across the whole band caused a last minute change of locations. Thankfully Gene M0ZRG was there to help with the setting up and he did a magnificent job throughout on the mast - I have no doubt we would have worked less without that teamwork so a big thank you to Gene for that support. Like Anthony no GD, GM or GI. Finger crossed we are still in a good place for the final score - if not no one can say we didn't try. Roll on 2016 - with more members, people improving their stations and activity on increased activity on 23cm and higher we are now in a really good position to hit 2016 running. Thank you to all.
Here's the map from tonight, can really complain with 4W!
Storm Frank takes its toll?
