Photos from our Amateur Radio HF Practical Assessment - Making Contact here with ZS3Y who was 750km away East of Uppington
The afternoon started with about 30 minutes to assemble and erect the inverted V antenna (for 40m and 80m bands) and after testing the SWR and switching the radio on, we each took turns to make contacts on the HF frequency bands. We each made two contacts so require another three before we can be signed off as having passed the practical assessment,
The furthest contact we made was with ZS3Y who was situated on a wine farm about 50km East of Uppington which was a good 750km away.
