VHF Contesting with the ICOM 9700

Our entry into the RSGB 2m Backpackers contest, using the new ICOM 9700. We made 79 contacts into 6 DXCC during the 4 hour contest and got sunburn in the process!

Me and Phil (M0NVS) operated under our club callsign (G1MDG/P) on behalf of the Chesham & District Amateur Radio Society (CDARS).

This contest is always relaxed and it’s nice to work others operating portable on hilltops around the UK.
