Royal Air Force Amateur Radio Society

RAFARS On The Air

VP8RAF/100 -  UPDATE 16 May 18 - Despite daily trips to the shack, band conditions were never favourable. The hastily erected long wire antenna was probably not the best. Maybe time to invest in a new antenna for the shack in the Falklands. In total, I only managed 5 contacts - very frustrating.  Kevin.  G6ZRL / VP8DIJ    RAF100 logo
