Yaesu FT290 running the 2m contacts at GX4MWS

Tonight in attendance, Chris M0VWT, Damian 2E0TXE, Edward 2E0NSR and Greg M0TXX.

Following on from last week, we finished tuning in the home made 2m Slimjim Antenna, achieving a low SWR in the FM portion. After sorting out some mounting and hooking up to the radio, we made contacts around Macclesfield. Hoping to use this more in the coming weeks to maintain local contacts and attract some new faces to the club!

If you have 2m setup, listen out on 145.500 and 145.325 for GX4MWS!
