Spring VHF/UHF FD plans?

Post by VK1DA » Mon Nov 23, 2020 12:09 pm

I’m contemplating a visit to Mt Perisher on Sunday for a SOTA activation and wondering if there will be field stations on the 2m band in the last hour of the contest, ie. from 0000 to 0100? If so we will make an effort to be on for the last hour or so. We will have 2m ssb gear and 1296 ssb 25w.

Update: wind forecast for Perisher on Sunday is >90 km/h, that is not antenna-friendly.

We are going to identify a different summit to activate. we have discussed it tonight at our SOTA dinner.
