Hi Ben, time spent playing on the radio is never wasted though. It is far better than time spent NOT playing on the radio...
I often struggled to make 50 km in the 432 FMAC using an 18-ele beam and my handheld, even with it vertical, so you are doing better than I was.
There is a lot of chat around how the 20 mW at 241 GHz was generated. With 57 dBi gain, that is a mighty EIRP, and then the little matter of climbing a mountain and having an optical path does tend to add a shedload of dBs to the signal!
