13cm last minute effort

EMEPosted by Ben Sun, October 07, 2012 08:18:55

13 cm is not available to SM any longer, but I have a high power permit to the end of 2012.

Yesterday (Oct 6) I was on 13cm trying to work a QSO. Heard DL1YMK, OZ4MM, ES5PC, ON5TA, PA3DZL and HB9Q, all with pretty easy copy. I tried a few CQs and was heard by SM4IVE. I have a number of issues before I can say I am QRV. The antenna tracking works nicely but need a better preamp (0,8 dB now) and I don't know how much power I have into the feed.
