Mills on the Air

The weekend of May 12th - 13th 2013 saw the annual Mills on the Air event and, having now got the station somewhat functional, I decided to fire up the '897 and see what was going on. As usual 40m was horribly noisy with all manner of local QRN hitting the aerial and finding its way into the rig. But, despite the efforts of electrical equipment in the vicinity, I did manage to make a few contacts.
