Couple of weeks ago i did a test on this radio (PMR CH8). I was just outside Sheffield on a Hill 1191ft asl looking over sheffield. just using Hi power (8watts) and standard rubber duck on this radio and hit Doncaster 25 miles away crystal clear and lighting up all bars on the other stations meter. So happy Very Happy

Last night i went to the top of my road only 850ft asl with my home made dipole held in hand above my head. Spoke to the same station again (as they are on all the time)  and picked up and hit another couple of stations in the Doncaster area one was on a binatone standard PMR radio. so all good and I'm a happy man bounce bounce bounce


just now got to make some poles and stuff to put it on

I use some great coax from knights very low loss , and all contacts on pmr is a great contact , but as lots say hight is might
