Found this video on YouTube this morning and it goes to show what a nice high location and decent mobile setup can do for CB radio working distance.
26CTX1059 has an excellent pole mounted antenna system on the go, that’s doing a great job judging by the signals that are flowing into it. Once you’ve had a look at the setup and location a large part of the video follows the transmissions on the net which are coming in from a large section of the UK.
26CTX1059 On Dunkery Beacon, Somerset
The place he’s using looks ripe for a spot of wild camping, so its been marked down for a portable CB radio overnight session sometime this year (hopefully), though I don’t think I’ll be dragging anywhere near the same size antenna up the hill with me 🙂
