Operational on 10 fm now using an AnyTone AT-5555 12 watts into a temporary quarter wave whip on tri magmount on metal shack roof. had 1 qso to date (I.O.W). Heard one more station but cb'er opposite running 40 watts desensing my radio so not worth answering at that time.
Also running 4 metres with a Wouxun KG-6993 handy. Also to a quarter wave on roof (Cut to exactly to 1 metre). No joy as yet on that one.
