In May 2014 we took part in the 432 and up contest. We operated from Therfield,IO92XA, with four stations:

70cm with 400W into a new box of 4 Powabeams. We made 110 QSOs with the best DX being DJ8MS at 823km

23cm with 100W into 4 x 23 element Tonnas. We made 20 QSOs with the best DX being DF0MU at 502km

13cm with 10W into a 57 element Wimo. We made 13 QSOs with the best DX being PE1MMP at 402km

3cm with 10W into a 50cm dish. We made 9 QSOs with the best DX being G3Z at 184km

It was very cold overnight, see the photo of Don’s Land Rover, but during the days it was much better than forecast. The radio conditions were poor with very low activity from UK amateurs.
