Excellent results using an ex-Special Forces radio on the 2m VHF band

I take the 2m VHF version of the Racal Cougar to some local high ground and using a slim Jim antenna make a number of contacts, testing out the radio.

The radio sounds and performs very admirably while being rugged (almost bulletproof!!). It can transmit at 20 watts or lower if needed. It is restricted to 10 channels which have to be pre programed which is what I have had done.

I would be very grateful if you could make a small DONATION to my PayPal account, this helps me keep the channel running, many thanks https://www.paypal.me/2e0ezt
