Simplex Test on Largo Rd
For the net tonight, VE7HZF drove to the “top” of Largo road just past where the Puddle Jumper's Aid Station 1 was (49.4296,-123.5586). The elevation was 680m above sea level and the car was positioned slightly to the west side of the “top” of the hill so as to see Sechelt better. The signal reports were as follow:
|Callsign||145.565 MHz||446.100 MHz|
|VE7RBE||Full quieting, full scale||Full quieting, full scale|
|VA7SMI||Full quieting, full scale||Full quieting, S71)|
|VE7TBP||Full quieting, full scale||Full quieting, full scale|
|VE7YEE||Full quieting, full scale||N/A|
|VE7RQX||Full quieting, full scale||Full quieting, full scale|
It would have been nice to test the UHF portion with more people on the Sechelt side, but fewer people have UHF on their radio.
It's also worth noting that VA7MG (Roger) and VE7TBN (Neil) attempted to check into the repeater portion of the net but were unsuccessful. They could both be heard strongly in simplex on the input of the repeater however.
