This is my local hill from home, so is easy to get out to for a quick activation. Andrew G4VFL had posted that he was going to be up Schiehallion with his father, and was keen to try 13cm from there – so he had a few takers! I decided to go for Allermuir as it’s also line of sight to Schiehallion, just over 100km.
For a year or two now I have had this little project in the back of my mind; that it would be great fun to receive signals from “deep space” probes, such as the many probes currently around Mars.
This was a short SOTA outing on 2.3GHz in the somewhat vain hope (given the conditions) of contacts to the north. However I was hopeful that I would get at least one contact – which is what happened.
