And for me, the first QSOs on the 3.4GHz tvtr created from a repurposed GARC [VCOM] panel, Stealth 20W PA and 90cm offset dish. Lessons learnt: :shock...

This is an opportunity we shoul...

No problem Steve.... be great to maximise the activity levels (as well as wish for good propagation).

For me and a couple of others, the location at 1,100mASL has been secured... We're now just finalising our plans and will hopefully share in next few days.
