I have just taken part in my 1st vhf contest on the 08/05/13. It was the Uk Activity contest which was the very 1st time I had decided to put up a small beam for and take part in. I have always used 2 meters Fm of which the furthest contact I have made is Wales. During the contest I worked various Uk stations and also Wales, Scotland, Ireland, Northern Ireland and Isle of Man which I would consider my best contact so far on Vhf ssb. Thanks to the stations that worked me and I look forward to the next time. Below is a map of the areas I worked during the contest.
