Tropo Good Today Toward ZZ

Post by G8DKC » Mon Feb 25, 2019 12:24 pm

Managed to get into ZZ from new lower location, 100m ASL 8M Pole 70 to 100w Max 437Mhz 23El Wimo Yagi.

Attached Pictures, had IP conflict on "Boat Cam", but resolved at end of contact, that's me a leering shadow :o

Rx working well at ZZ, Started at 437Mhz 2M/S H242, but dropped in and out rapidly, then stayed on 1M/S H264, which probably meant it was a longer contact.

Should now sort out sound with video, also 750 link to and from shack, all the equipment is remotely controlled from boat.

Ken G4BVK was surprised to see me through, 247m hill West of Evesham plus smaller bumps, the total path 150Km.

It would be great to get an extra H264 Rxs installed elsewhere.

Thanks to all at ZZ.
