GB3ET: Success finally!

With the 23 ele Tonna pointing out of the bedroom window GB3ET is now a decent signal when using the G4DDK preamp/BPF:-

I also had a chance to try out my (unboxed) Winterhill single nim receiver, finished yesterday afternoon on a real signal. Its now possible to use it for purposes other than QO100 thanks to the Receiver commander software of G4EWJ:-

Transmitting at it using the Portsdown 4 and 2 amplifiers to give 10W I managed to gain access. The only issue was that the streamer chops off the bottom 15% of the screen hence I had to replace the contest numbers in the middle of the screen with the locator:-

This picture, received through the repeater shows my takeoff towards GB3ET. The path length is 60km
