I wanted to test 6 meters band in FG, because this band got a lot of restriction in France where some french departement don’t allow 50Mhz activity. I decided to build and use a double bazooka antenna that seems to works really great with QSO with South America and USA.

The frequency I use is 50.100 Mhz and 50.110 Mhz.

QTH Locator is IC18VF
Here is first QSO with : PY3PAC, W4TSR, CE4SES, CE3JGV, PU2TES, CE2PCD, PY3PDR.
