After seeing Matt’s alert for Mt Ginini VK1/AC-008 I went up to Mt Ainslie at lunch time. Worked Matt on 2m using a HT.
Also tried out the FT-817 with the Diamond RHM8B whip. Placed the radio on the cap park asphalt connected the antenna and extended the loading coil for a low SWR. The antenna might be small but it did the job. A quick and easy chase, Matt was 5-3 to me, a successful chase on 40m.
