National Hamfest 2011

Glorious sunshine today at the Newark Showground for the Hamfest, had a good time and despite the temptations didn't spend lots of money just a few books from the RSGB stand. My brother got himself a new antenna to hopefully improve his scanner reception. But the highlight of the day was him winning a 4-element 2m Yagi antenna in the prize draw! It was the last draw of the show and with six no-shows for the prize, he won it on the seventh redraw! I had jokingly said to him we will give it one more chance and then we will go....

He cannot really use it, so I currently have the antenna and may set it up if I can find somewhere to mount it!
