PEARS National VHF contest

I have been rather busy the last while and did not have the inclination to blog.

The last weekend I took part in one of our VHF contests and had much fun. I still amazes me that how effective WSJT can be. I operated on the 6m band exclusively. Almost all the contacts were as result of random meteors.

I am very pleased with the performance of my new 6M5XHP Yagi. It seems to work very well indeed.

Best distance 1,281 km

Blue pins - Stations active (not worked)
Red pins - Stations worked.

If only VHF was more popular in Southern Africa.......
