V/S Portable to Portable



Made a portable to portable contact with KO4MA on AO-51 in Mode V/S this
morning.  Four contacts total, VE3NPC, KO4MA (portable), N8MH, and W7JPI.

My setup:
Downlink
Homebrew K5OE dual L/S Patch feed
W6OAL S Helix Feed
***** Both feeds worked well ******
DB6NT downconverter
Homebrew Power Inserter
Yaesu FT-5100 dual band mobile rig (5kHz tuning steps)

Uplink
Yaesu FT-5200 dual band mobile rig, 20 watts output
Larsen monoband VHF 5/8 wave whip

So, if you have the pieces give AO-51 a try portable, in Mode V/S.  You
don't have to have a fancy all-mode rig in the car to make it work.
