Today, I done a little 12 mile hike that involved a lunch break at the east lomond car park (so nice high take off) and heard a short qso between an op in Livingston and another op up a hill somewhere, he was called Chris. My mouth was full of cheese and salami on a roll at the time, so didn’t call out. At the same time, there was an SP8 station who briefly came in very very strong on 145.500. Again, I nearly choked on my roll! This was on my FT70 handie, so even more surprising. Must have been one hell of a brief lift on because I never heard any DX again. To say I was surprised, was an understatement! I’m pretty certain that the other two Scottish ops didn’t hear the dx as they were calling at the exact same time, but I could hear the SP8 in between their CQ calls. ... See MoreSee Less

After nearly 5 years off the air (other than marine radio at Sea Cadets), I'm so excited that I can listen in to various calls. Still to transmit yet! Loving my new radio (even if you all claim its just skype! 😃

If there's anyone in the club that would like to join in a net sometime, or wants to share advice with me, then please get back to me.

Here's my setup today. I'm going to try and get my VHF antenna somewhere sensible on the roof for the odd time that I can actually get a signal out of Haddington.

Now you’re not allowed to fo this but I am.

For Sale. 2 x Yaesu FT1000MP.

If you’ve ever worked GM2T, GB2LBN, GB2MOF, GB2NMM or MM0CPS/P, you’ve worked someone on one of these radios.

The only reason these are for sale is that GM2T have updated our HF radios so these have become available.

They have lived around 99% of their lives either in their box or their flight case. They have only really been used about 6 days s year.

I’d say they were in very very good condition even if the boxes are a bit tatty.

Each radio comes with a mic, manual double box and power lead. They are both mains radios with built in power supplies.

Those who know me, know that I vang on about how great these radios are. The receiver really is excellent and still up there with the best of them. We gave always also had excellent transmit audio reports.

They have always been been use with resonant antennas however the tuner in these rigs will tune a wet bit of string.

You can get these cheaper but due to the lack of use, these rigs are the ones to grab. I’m looking for £750 ovno each for them.

You will try them before you but them at my place when you come to collect one. Or both if you really want.

PM me on messenger. If we’re not friends, post below to tell me you’ve PM’d.

Wished I had the money

Awesome radios, love mine. Disappointed it wasn’t advertised on 27.555 🤣

Paul, just to mess with your head !!!

Make me an offer, these won't be around for long. They will go on eBay.

Love mine.

well, all of you with MP's, have you seen the fantastic filters that will be coming up for sale very very soon ? Ask me for details.

Bid £575 if not too cheeky cheers

Oooft. That's tempting. They're handsome radios, right enough. I've run out of RF coupons though so unfortunately, I'm out. 😕

Both rigs now sold. Just the filters to go.
