2m UKAC this evening with QRP and a halo

Stations worked on 2m SSB with 5W and halo tonight
After 90 minutes of 2m contesting this evening I decided to QSY to 472kHz WSPR even though there was another hour to go.  The contest was my first from the new QTH running 5W into the 2m halo on the roof. In all I managed 12 QSOs with the best DX GW4FZN/P near Bala at 272km. Best DX heard was G4PPT/M in IO70 near Penzance, Cornwall.

The RSGB UK Activity Contests are every Tuesday evening on different VHF/UHF bands each week of the month. Great fun for an hour or so and well supported.
