Well I decided to brave the cold and replace the Arno Cobra with a white stick from the reserves bench (the shed) Had it for at least 20 years I suppose.
Anyway, after checking the swr was still valid with the MFJ analyzer, I set up the IC 2820 on the bench. I'm now open for business, either digital or analogue fm.
SSTV's abit slow today. Still sunny, but warnings of snow this afternoon. Think we'll miss the worst of it here though.
