I will endeavor to leave my 4x 44el's beaming IO73 and the rig on
1297.500 FM in the hope of a contact at the weekend.
73 Ray GM4CXM
150w available but will be backed off for FM!

With reference to Gerald GW4OIG potential North Wales SOTA
Gerald OGI normally only has low power on 23cms (mW).
I have sent him an Email asking what he will be using, will
post it on here when I get the reply.
activations this coming weekend, Gerald has Emailed me the following
"At the moment I have been using the beam horizontal, though I will
be making an adaptor plate before the activation so it can be
used vertically polarised. I will be taking a small 3.2m pole with
me and can drop this to change polarisation if needs be. I think
horizontal polarisation will have the best potential for distance
contacts, but realise not everyone has a beam.
The nominal power will be 280mW from the handheld - no power
amplifier as yet and unlikely to get one sorted by the weekend. I
have plans for a Mitsubishi brick to give be 10 watts or more
