Justin Johnson G0KSC sent us this photo of an InnovAntennas crossed Yagi being used in Greenland on a recent scientific expedition. Dr Mike Prior-Jones of the Cardiff University School of Earth and Ocean Sciences writes, “Just a quick note to say that I’m back from my field trips and have had a pretty successful season. We took your antennas to two sites in Greenland and to the Swiss Alps and were generally very impressed – the antennas proved robust and gave good RF performance. I’m still to process some of the data to get some exact figures, but we did succeed in communicating with the Cryoegg through 1350m of ice. Not quite the 2km that I’d hoped for but we think we had a couple of issues – one with the casework leaking under pressure, and the other with not
getting full RF output from the transmitter”.
