144MHz UKAC December 2012 – M0PCB

Interestingly I’d not made any other QSOs between the 144MHz AFS contest and this event so I’ve got quite a string of 2m SSB and CW QSOs in the log, which is novel. I didn’t work many new stations, and no new squares. I’ve spotted a trend towards not being able to work much to the East of here, what with a large granite lump in the way a couple of miles away. North, South and West all seem pretty good directions and I worked a reasonable spread again.

22 QSOs in total in an hour and a quarter before other activities got in the way. These came in the form of an invite to the pub to talk about radio. I figured that I probably wasn’t going to lose much by doing that as I’d not have been active until the end anyway.

My best DX was GD8EXI again, followed by G3SMT and G4TSW, all of whom were very good signals and easily worked with 80W or so into a 4 element LFA.
