70 MHz portable from Cromer

Operating portable from the highest point in Norfolk (100m ASL) from Beacon Hill close to Cromer North Norfolk JO02OV. The set-up included the Icom 7100 and 50w into a Slim Jim supported on a 12m Spider beam roach pole.


Beacon Hill is an old Roman Fort, and while its elevated you cant really see much due to the surrounding trees. I was able to make contact with a few local station. M6CFU – Steve @ Overstrand, G4OUB/M John, M6GAD – Gary Cromer, M0AQC – Alan Mablethorpe.
