The Peel Amateur radio club held a NVIS testing event
I had a super busy day but I tosssed my FT817 non ND (2001) Go bag in the car on the way to buy groceries and voila I made some contacts by laying out the Packtenna in a NVIS configuration. It was horizontal about 6 feet off the ground. I just tossed it into some trees and rolled it into the car window
Operation was in Vaughan, Ontario. As people walked by my car they stooped down to not hit my antenna . Thanks dog walkers.
I was on the air in 3 minutes and knocked out a few VE3 contacts to confrim “in the log” and participated in the event
All contacts were within 50 miles
