RSGB UK VHF/UHF Activity Contests - Tuesday nights

This year I keep forgetting to have a go in the regular UKAC contests every Tuesday evening. Activity in these is usually very good and they are great fun. Last year I went out in the field to a local high spot on both 70cm and 2m and achieved some good results with just 2.5W - remember I only found out the FT817 "3 blobs" setting was not 5W in December!  Before moving in to my new East Anglian "hilltop" QTH - well it is 20m ASL :-) - I think I'll have to do some of these contests /P from the new back garden to see how the new location will be on VHF and UHF.
