Good luck, keep us posted emoticon

Re: Isle Of Wight 19th-20th April


well i never really got much time to myself to go dx'in but had a couple of copies on the sunday afternoon. nothing outside the uk unfortunatly although i did hear a bit of french groundwave whilst up a big hill near Ventnor.
 on the sunday i was sat around 104m ASL of wight#map=[sign in to see URL],[sign in to see URL]|14|4&dp=841&loc=GB:[sign in to see URL]:[sign in to see URL]|isle of wight|]>HERE< . Bembridge Down not far from Sandown, its not very high up but seemed to work ok and is well out in the open. I only spoke to 4 people on SSB as the kids started gettin noisey so retired back to the camp site.

26MW01 Mike Oxford(nice to speak again, and from another spot)
26PMH01 Martin Eastleigh
26AT376 Mike Skegness, this guy was louder than all the others i spoke to and he was the furthest away excellent contact for me being so far south emoticon
26PW70 Peter South of Gatwick

only 4 but an hour well spent, all these contacts were on my MK1 Cobra 148GTL-DX, Astatic TD mic, KL200 amp and a Sirio Mega 3000(magmount)
