Hartwoodmyres, Sep 2006

September 17th, 2006 by gdars

The equipment was set up on the hill at Hartwoodmyres near Selkirk. Dave (GM0KCN) set up his HF dipole (coming down from a long pole, raised by pulley system) and operated his Yaesu 757GX set powered by 12v car battery (still attached to the car)! A vertical fishing pole antenna was also set up.

Colin (MM1APS) arrived and set up his vertical “screwdriver” HF antenna and Kenwood TS50 powered by the biggest sealed-lead-acid “Gell-cell” battery you’ve ever seen!

Jim (GM7LUN), George (GM1OPO) and Mike (MM3NTX) came along and helped out.

Several contacts were made by both Dave and Colin, and a good day was had by all. NB No frogs were harmed during the making of this website…
