25-September-2018 SHF UKAC

Frustratingly, my reference GPSDO refused to fully lock to the satellites, so I was drifting about a bit.

Peter G3PHO & I found our reflection point so he was my first contact on 3cm and the only contact I made to the South of me on this band. Nick G4KUX was my best DX to the North. So just 6 contacts in 3 squares.

I then tried 13cm with the usual 2W. I was pleased to get Brian G8KPD/P in IO85 and out to John G3XDY in JO02. I even managed Neil G4BRK to the South, which is my most obstructed direction from here, so maybe we got a bit of Aircraft Scatter assistance? Mike G8CUL was another surprise.

16 contacts in 7 squares. An 11pm finish is a bit late for me, so I gave up before the end and went to bed.
