Sunday was a good start as sunshine and blue skies. Temperature mod 20’s and second location was fine just some dog training going on in the field. Antenna choice today was the President Dakota a used eBay find on the chunky magnet. SWR was perfect 1:1 from 26965-27600 and topped out 1:8 on 27.999 while on 26:400 was 1:9 so good bandwidth
Today decided to call on channel 39 (27:395 USB) as conditions were open and breakthrough on AM/FM were strong. All international and absolutely nothing locally.

Adding these to my total it makes 1296.4km overall km worked. All on video if evidence needed. Good fun, hard with poor conditions but the fun is in taking part and having a go.
