Entered the UKAC 432Mhz Contest last night (Tuesday 8th of October) under my UK Callsign M0XII/P.
I was portable from locator IO91MP with Jason M1PRO and John G0KLX. We ended the contest with a total of 89 QSO's and 14 Square Multipliers and a total score of 189,574. The furthest contact was GM4CXM - 527Km on Flat conditions, QSB on the 70Cm band was deep at times but we really enjoyed the activity on 432Mhz.
Setup was an FT847 & 100 Watt Linear Amplifier.
The Antenna was a Tonna 21 Element Yagi and of course the good old Arm Strong Rotator.
I must say these Tonna Yagi's have a very narrow beam width but work quiet well.
Thanks to all the stations that called through it was much appreciated and made time fly by especially when your out portable on top of a cold hill. I look forward to the next UKAC Contest hope to hear you on the bands.
