I popped up to the bees to check that they were alright just before lunch and I had GB3FX running in the car. I tried a call through it and for the first time I had a reply and a QSO!
John, G3VHH/M was close to the M4 at Reading and we had a nice QSO. It seems that GB3FX is active in the mornings with a commuter net, but closer to 8am. John reported that GB3AM, the Amersham 6m repeater sees heavier activity earlier in the mornings. Sadly though, I don't think I can hear GB3AM from this part of the world.
Nice to make the inaugural QSO on 6m with the new rig though.
