Following the announcement of the SOTA 12 metre challenge I posted about some things I needed to do to be able to participate.
I made a repair to the FT757 and now it outputs 50 Watts on both the 10 and 12 metre bands.
All up it took about 90 minutes to tune the three bands with the occasional interruption from the dog walkers asking what I was doing.
Once tuned I took the antenna back into the workshop and soldered the RCA connectors in place and then it was ready to go.
The next day I took the new antenna to Mt Toorongo Range and made four QSOs on 12 m including one summit to summit QSO with Glenn, VK3YY.
I have now accepted the challenge!
