26-Nov-2019 SHF UKAC using 13cm and 3cm bands

I hopped about between both bands. On 13cm it was was nice to work Pete G4CLA again. Keith G4ODA was my best DX (longest distance) at 117 km. So my contacts were all pretty local really. I used 25W into the coax to the antenna box, so the Andew amplifier was under-driven.

On 3cm, my initial contact was with Peter G3PHO. Our usual reflection point worked well to get round the hills. Keith G4ODA was my best DX (longest distance) on this band.

The rain was in the wrong places for rain scatter.

Denis G3UVR was much easier to hear on 3cm than on 13cm, and the dish is mounted a bit lower down than the 13cm yagi.
