QSO Party 21/11/21

It was a good turnout for our QSO party on Sunday the 21st of November. Some members working from home while others ventured further afield. Morning AM was on 2mtrs 144.550 and the afternoon was on 10m at 28,400.

Trystan’s setup using local stones and weighting for his antenna.

Hand in glove with nature to accommodate his transceiver.

The afternoon session on 10m proved quite a good signal coverage considering the poor conditions.

Members Steve G3OAG, Ash M0IXW, Peter 2E0PGX/P Saddleworth, Peter G0GPH Owd Betts, Martin G6TAT Unsworth and Jim M0ANQ where joined later by Wayne M7BDF a welcome visitor checking out his mag loop antenna.
