Entry to the 2m FM activity contest postponed until July

Given that the likelihood of my car not being repaired until Wednesday at the latest, I have put my entry in the 2-metre FM activity contest on hold until July, this it not the news I wanted to give but given the nature of what has happened and the fact I had to remove my home antenna there is little else I can do at this time.

I wanted to enter the contest's restricted section, which would allow me to use anything up to my legally allowed 50 watts, though I could easily use 25 as my FTM-400XDE has that at it's mid setting and my QYT KT-8900D has that at high power, hence why I require at least an external antenna or my car, as neither are available to me right now (the magmount is in fact in my hallway and so is the antenna) the contest is not realistic to enter in June, though back in May when I did all the planning my car had a fully working clutch and simply a rattle underneath.

I have updated the upcoming events on YouTube to allow for the live streaming of myself taking part in the contest, my laptop will be used for logging and I will be changing Minos to reflect this as well so the contest date is correct for my uploading of logs.

The QTH move will begin in the next week or two, so I may not be on air or updating this often during that time

Due to past abuse and the ongoing issues that left me little choice to reduce time on twitter and IRC I have taken the decision to keep comments disabled indefinitely, apologies for this
