I have been taking part in the annual anniversary test which runs for the whole of May each year. The object is to work as many members of the society as you can. This year has been hard again with poor conditions. I don’t think i did so well but have managed to work 31 members, mostly in the UK but one in Spain and one in Australia so i was especially pleased with VK6PG on 20 meters.
Antennas have been my indoor magloops and on one occasion a 132ft doublet i strung out at the club one weds night.
The VK6PG though was worked on my indoor “Baby Zilla” magloop
Seen here on the right. It is mounted N/S in my roofspace and is giving a good account of itself. VK6PG said i was as strong as most of the UK stations he had worked and said that condx were poor so that made the QSO with Alan even more pleasing. The rig used was the FT840 and i was running 50 watts.
