Shack on a Letterbox

A friend has kindly lent me his FT-817 and I decided to have a quick play late on Sunday afternoon. 5W, a random wire and a manual tuner works well. Seems to be a lot more sensitive on receive than the Barrett 950. Might just be the lack of bulk QRM from the home dipole that makes the difference.

  1. Watch out for the SOTA bug Merton. 🙂
    Watching you blog over the last few months, it looks as though you are ready for SOTA in VK6 and portable operations including National Parks.

      It’s already bitten quite hard, Andrew. Thinking about activating a national park about 20 minutes north of my QTH.
