DX Picnic up the hills


Hi All, planning a full afternoon up the hill with a picnic.

Desperate to break the DX Virginity of the 840, so taking G5RV to put up an inverted V to try Echo Charlie,aswell as usual Silver Rod and just for fun my old Stinger Mobile on a Boot hatch clamp. shame I cant co-phase all three !!! LOL emoticon

listen out for me on 555 & 585

cheers Tony
