Last night the 21st June we had a well attended net and a few new operators with VHF horizontal yagi's.
We mainly worked on FM and horizontal and it was very pleasing with the distances we were able to achieve on horizontal polarization.
From Pretoria to wards Krugersdorp on normal vertical antennas we were struggling to have qso's but last night with the horizontal yagis and FM we managed to have QSO,s with between 5/7 and 5/9 reports between ZS6CBQ/ZS6EFN/ZS6QTF/ZS6GJV and ZR6CMG.

ZS6QTF has a small 3 element yagi and that alone was a very big improvement on the distances he managed to work.

If possible we would advice that a small yagi or even a loop antenna be installed horizontal it will open up a new world on VHF with much greater distances to be achieved.

From Pretoria we also managed to join the Kempton park net on 144.300 ssb vertical and had a few nice short QSO's.

The following stations were active on VHF last night
From Krugersdorp ZS6CBQ
From Pretoria ZS6EFN ZS6GJV ZS6QTF ZR6CMG ZU6CC
From Kempton Park ZS6BT ZS6VB ZS6UD ZS6UB.
