After trying each lunchtime from work to make a contact on 70.450MHz FM using the PRC-351, I decided today to try the same using my FM-1100. This uses the same magmount antenna as i'd been using with the '351, but at 15W rather than 4W, and is capable of 12.5kHz steps, giving me the whole of the 4m FM allocation.
But not a sausage! Where has all the 4m FM activity midday gone? There used to be at least a couple of stations monitoring that i could reach from Emley!
