Hi Paul,

There are plenty of stations around you on 4m on both FM and SSB, I'm sure you will have found that out by now as I notice this post is a few weeks old

Cheers,

Looking at your locations I'm not too far away from you.I'm just in the process of setting up on 4m so could well be up and running in the next week or so. (Although I'm in a bit of a dead spot for local stuff)

Are you staying in the Teeside area or going further afield?

Personally from what I've read and been told, stay away from the quad band antenna. It's a compromise and downs perform too grand at all.

I've just bought a simple and cheap dipole for 4m and although I like contructing stuff myself, I doubt I could have made it any cheaper.

It's early days and further tests are required but I'm in a radio dead zone, it's mounted very low, using only 10W, and cross polarised from the person I had the QSO with and was still getting a +40 report several miles away. Very impressed.
