What's on the mind of a UK ham radio operator?
My first few contacts on the Optibeam
Well it's finally happened, the Optibeam is up and running. I decided to have a look on 17 m today because being the weekend, there was a contest on. I managed to work quite a few stations within Europe, nothing spectacular though. Then I went onto 10 m a little bit later on and have a nice reply from G3VHB/MM who was sailing his private yacht off the coast of Mauritania. I made a short video of the first few contacts I made and 17 m today.
