So i got excited today and tossed the BITx 40 and a 7ah sla onto the back seat of the ute and headed off to play a little radio. To be honest its been a really long time since i have gotten out and about in vk and did some park activation. The BITx is a bunch of fun to operate with its huge 7w and a lack of all creature comforts, but it does the job even if you have to ride the volume knob for when someone big gives you a real signal.
So I spent about an hour in the park and made 21 contacts. Not to shabby all things considered as its a work day and the band conditions were poor. The only non vk2 and 4 contact made was with Paul vk5pas and thats because he lives on top of a mountain and has pretty good antenna, but even with his superior location the best he could give me was 33 to his 56.
Anyway, i had fun and look forward to getting out and doing some more parks soon, it has really been a long time since i have done any, other than an an activation in the teams even with 4aac i have not really done a park since Easter. Bring on more wwff and more activations.
Oh and its time i fixed the displayed frequency, im actually on 7.149 irrespective of what display says HAHA.
