December DX Man month when the Czech PMR DX broke the record for the furthest contact on 446Mhz. It is set from a mountain range in the north of the republic and mountain Klinovec to Mala Fatra a mountain range in Slovakia. The distance 437km. As you see on the photo radio has additional wire around the antenna.
In between the stations was another guy active from a small hill and recorded the QSO as it took place. He was pivotal in helping as when the stations moved location as on feet the signal was of course better or worse. The station in Slovakia was an Alinco DJ-500 with an external 1/2 antenna and 1w power. The Czech side was Motorola featured above with additional wire wrapped around the fixed antenna.
