2m AM QSO - 100 miles - 10mW - halfwave whip

My  XYL was looking in our loft for some pictures and came across my mobile logbook that I had not seen for over 7 years. I have never managed to get in our loft since my 2013 stroke. 

In the logbook is my Fredbox QSO across the Channel with 10mW and a halfwave whip on 2m AM in 1976. This was one of my all-time best ever QSOs. See logbook page photo below.

Years later the Fredbox was revived and used for some local QSOs again.

...And the RSGB doesn't recognise AM.

Shame on them :-(

Agreed - AM has its place.
