QRM on Normanby Top...

Since my last article about this summit, I've activated it a number of times on HF, from very close to the golf ball radar station. However, about a year ago, a massive bank of solar panels were installed inside the radar station compound. As a result the QRM by the radar station on 20m is bad, peaking 10 over 9. The activation zone for this one is massive, so I would suggest if you`re planning any HF, move about half a Kilometre away from the radar station, where things are much quieter. 73 Mike 2E0YYY
