Thread: 4m band

  1. #1

    Default 4m band

    Hi everyone!

    In Slovakia, we recently acquired 4m band (69.9-70.5 MHz) and I wish to buy an affordable radio (the likes of TS-M588).

    Is it possible to do DX qsos using such an equipment with a simple dipole, possibly while operating mobile on a reasonably high hill?

    Is it better to buy a 60W mobile radio?

    Thanks for any and all input.

    Yes, it should be, but atmospheric conditions will play an important part. Check out www.70mhz.org for like-minded people.

    I have a transverter for my Yaesu FT-857D, but this only puts out around 10W.

    I also have an Anytone AT-588 (FM only), which I picked up on eBay for around half price. I use this more than the 857, though longest QSO was around 10 miles, or so. That said, I haven’t had much opportunity to use it.

    Kind regards,



    Phil
