It took a while to get going but is already producing some good results, I've worked VKs already on 12m and 10m, and a fair few South Americans on 10m, all with a simple vertical. If things carry on, reckon we could start hearing some signals (PMR etc.) around 40MHz next winter, and maybe some 6m sigs in 2 years time

Hi Dai ..i missed the last solar max really, but the one before was a load of fun,
all we need now is patience and a little luck !

had plenty of contacts into Israel, USA and a few far east ones already
on 10m, on the FT 817 .. but just to get ready i picked up a FT 920,
