|Just 2 stations worked in 50MHz UKAC this evening with 5W to vertical V2000|
25 Nov 2014
Even though my voice is still very bad I may try for a few points in the 50MHz UKAC contest 2000-2230z tonight. The only 50MHz antenna I have is my V2000 vertical, so I am unlikely to work much. I'll probably not be on for too long.
UPDATE 2122z: I was on for about 50 minutes and had to stop as my voice was suffering badly. Being crossed polarised with most stations did not help. I managed just 2 QSOs with 5W to the V2000 vertical with best DX being G3WIR/A at 116km. With, for example. a 6m halo, horizontally polarised antenna, I'd probably have worked many more stations than I did. Still, it was worth a go.
