2m FM Simplex Alive and Well in VK1

What a great drive home tonight. Threw out a CQ on 2m FM on the call freq (146.500MHz) while leaving Deakin and picked up VK1NPW (Peter) over in Erindale. Then as I finished chatting with him VK1MAT (Mat) came up on air for a chat while driving out near/towards Bonython (I was on the Cotter Road near Yarralumla Woolsheds); then for the finale we had VK1GT (Graham – sp?) in Kambah break in and join us.

That's right, a nice little impromptu 2m FM Simplex net with three of us mobile.

Greatest turn out I've encountered in over a year I've been calling CQ on 2m on the way to and from work! Hopefully it'll occur again soon, so listen in and add 146.500MHz to your scan frequencies and feel free to join in! 🙂
