Operating 2m

This hill still suffers from pager interference making 2m operation difficult to impossible. I started using a slim jim on a 4m mast to my FT290 Mark 1 but it was impossible to operate. I did find though, that if I disconnected the slim jim and used the telescopic whip on the FT290 the rig front end could cope with the pager tx. This was the only way I could activate this hill. 73 Glenn
