Easter Saturday 2m FM Low Power Challenge

Andy 2E0DIQ is doing his usual fine job of drumming up activity in the area with another event aimed at getting stations of all levels out portable and having fun with radio.

Details as follows:

Easter Saturday 30th March 1200-1400hrs 2m FM Low Power challenge
To operate on no more power than Foundation licence allows (10w currently, 25w when Ofcom allows, should be by Easter)
To set up /P in a place of your choice, to run an antenna of your choice, at a height of your choice. You cannot operate from your home QTH.
The aim, to exchange callsign, signal report, and WAB square with as many others as possible in a 2hr timeframe.

Walkie talkie challenge:
As above, but power not exceeding 5w (ie no plugging radio into an amp). Walkie talkie to walkie talkie contacts – give it try?

The point of the exercise is to create a level playing field for all operators, of all licence levels and to have fun testing and trying out radios and antennas in the field.
