IARU Region 1 432 and up

432 MHz: 57 QSO’s, ODX 723km
1296 MHz: 18 QSO’s, ODX 467km

Noise is becoming a problem on 432 MHz to. I ran the contest without pre-amp on 23cm. This was very noticable. On Sunday I quickly build one and used this indoor. The Icom IC-9100 is somewhat deaf.

I expected more participants from the UK and Scandinavia.

Antenna on 70cm: 19el LFA. Antenna on 23cm: 120cm dish. Power: 432 MHz was 75 Watts, power on 23cm was 120 Watts.
