This year I'd decided I needed to get a bit off HF contests, while at the same time HF propagation was decreasing rapidly. Well, that was an excellent chance
to test my new VHF setup.
EU VHF contest was really very accomodating, as it would suit my working site, too!
After careful planning, I decided to participate in 2m Single SSB/CW with my Kenwood TM-255E @ 50w , 2x 7 element DK7ZB 28Ohm yagis stacked vertically in horizontal polarization and a 180Ah car battery. A marvellous, VHF favoring location was spotted at South Rhodes, on top of a hill 225m a.s.l. that houses a wind turbines park. QRA Locator: KM35UW , being a rare one for most of you !!
