I won't be able to hear the Homesteaders in Pompey but I'll keep a check on ch27 later in case you make the trip here. Should be able to get out with the radio after lunch, sun is beaming down again.

Hi Mike,
was nice to work your station in S/W France from my boat,hope to catch you again now you are back in Blighty.
Am mostly on U.K. 40 as there are plenty of local stations calling on ch19 and usually use lower channels (ch2/ch7) but do monitor and call on T5 mostly late evening.
Hope you enjoyed your trip.

Regards Colin

Hi. Colin.

Thanks for your post. It was good working you from SW14 div while your bobbing about on the swell on the
cut. I was out last night on the Southern listening to Roy 104DA 101 on Corsica working UK. He had a Qso
with Fred in Belfast who I spoke to in 14div. I'm about most days on T5/.395. I cant work above T5 from
Qth due to Qrm. I will be on the Party on 27th June on 26.975USB from High Ground[uponthill] I'm going to
SW 14div again on 1/15 Sept. 20km north of Spanish border in Pyrenees. My ASL will 3000m. Good DX 73s
Mike.

I was getting slight echoey flashes of Fred like very faint backscatter when Roy was working him. The wonders propagation still amaze after all these years on the band. Could you not hear Neil 388 Mike, he was up at Combe Gibbet and he could probably see Yeovil from up there!

Hi. Stu.
No. Sorry when the Net moved from .395 to .385. I heard a few stations but the Qrm was to bad. then
someone said try .965 it's clear. So I went up there & lost everyone. So I went Qrt @ 2120. Catch you
next time. Hope I don't have to keeping saying that. 73s Mike.
