VK7BEN 23cm Station

VK7BEN’s 23cm Station with new Yagi

Participants: VK7’s MO, BEN, MA, WLH, TU, ZBX, OO, DM, HRS, KRJ

A great turnout on 23cm today with 10 participants! Many of the people were using their newly constructed yagi antennas built at the workshop at VK7MO’s last week. There was much interest in comparing signals with the new antennas.

By all reports, everyone has seen definite improvements in the receive and transmit signals, with many commenting on being able to hear people they couldn’t before and reports of the strongest signals from people in many months. VK7TU commented that is may also be due to the heavy rain yesterday causing the hills to be wetter and therefore more reflective of the signals.
