After Sunday's miserable performance on the club net. I hacked together a basic dipole using some thick galvanised wire I had lying around. Not very easy to work with so tuning would be challenging. No need to worry, first test gave a 1:1 match on the upper half of the 2m band! Put out a call on GB3MI which is in the area of my club members, no response but I could RX myself via hackgreen websdr and gave myself 59, FB!
