Sun 9th June 2019 PW 144MHz QRP Contest

June 9th, 2019 by gdars

On Sunday 9th June 2019, club members were operating GM4YEQ/P in the Practical Wireless 144MHz QRP Contest from our usual spot on Ettrick Swire between Yarrow and Ettrick. 

We had a successful day, made 21 contacts in 12 different squares, from the Isle of Skye IO67 down to the Isle of Wight IO90.
We escaped most of the rain, retreating to the inside of Dave’s Picasso during a couple of the heavier showers, but otherwise occasional drizzle and a bitterly cold wind!

Many thanks to Dave (GM0KCN) and Jim (GM7LUN) for operating the station, Mike (MM3NTX) for logging, and George (GM1OPO) for helping set up.

Antenna poles ready for assembly.
Good job you remembered to bring the antenna, Dave!
Now, which end of which pole do we fasten the antenna to?
This isn’t the first time the antenna was bolted onto the pole.
Antenna up, just need some guys to hold it.
Windy site!
Dave and Mike making the first contacts.
George testing the output and signal are all okay.
Jim taking over for a bit.
