PW 144MHz Contest, Sunday 11th June 2017

June 12th, 2017 by gdars

A few of our members took part in this year’s annual Practical Wireless 144MHz Contest. 17 contacts made, 10 different locator squares.

Good time was had by all despite the howling winds and bucketing rain.

Many thanks to all for helping out, and thanks to Dave S for the bacon rolls!!

 

Mike MM3NTX assisting setup

Dave S GM0KCN making final adjustments to the mast.

Squares contacted over the day. Sure this is worth a prize of some sort…. #bingo

Temporary “shack”. Could have done with more cushions though… Plenty legroom though.

Food preparation! Not bad going considering the howling wind at the time…

Both masts

Co-linear mast for “spotting”.

Main antenna for making contacts.
