I was up in Galway over the weekend, helping out a friend of mine in at the Galway Rally, as most of the time is spent in service not doing much, I had the radio on in the car monitoring PCsat and ISS during their Joint Operations

On sunday I left it beaconing on the 145.825, and once I got somewhat back down the country I switched to EI2WRC-2’s frequency of 144.850 which is currently being monitored by EI8JAs installation of xastir in Waterford City. As you can see from the resulting picture below, it largely covered my journey back to Waterford through Clonmel (as well as some of the journey up)


For such a simple technology (realistically), it really is quite powerful.
