A very cold and foggy morning at the club today 15/01/2022. While the less hardy members retreated to the shack a group of members helped Daron 2E0GFY to finish and tune the 20m and 17m flower pot antennas he has made to use for small footprint portable operation with a 12m fiberglass pole and a car drive on mount. Ready for operation when he is out with the clubs portable group. Members braving the cold and working on the antennas were Daron 2E0GFY, Andy M0IYE, Les G1LBQ, Steve M5ZZZ, and David M6OYN. As a test call David M6OYN worked into Slovenia 59 on his 10w, two antennas now working really well. Just the thing the club is there for, so as members can help each other out. Thanks to Daron for bringing an interesting project to get on with on an otherwise grim day.
