Well I finally connected up my 6m 1/4 wave groundplane. Have it on the Midland Syntech FM rig scanning 22 channels! Pretty much just noise tonight. The only repeater that I had any luck with in the past was the Burnsville machine. It doesn't appear to be working at the moment....so I had a simplex converstation with myself on the Cherokee AH-50..hi hi. At least both radios worked. Might have Doug go out for a drive with the AH-50 and see what we can do on simplex. The ground plane is only up about 10 feet, so it's a flame thrower by any stretch. I'd like to get it to the 20 foot level at least.
