2m Contest

Made a few QSOs in the RSGB 2m activity contest tonight, getting 263 points. At the moment, looking at the claimed scores table I'm second to last but don't expect to get much being vertically polarised.
I got locked out of my car earlier tonight after parking too close to a local amateur who was using 433.550 MHz, the remote control wouldn't work while he was transmitting. The car next to me (also a Vauxhall) was being affected too, the owner was trying to get it to open. I've had this problem in the past and even if I use the key in the door, the alarm sounds as soon as I turn the ignition.
At least it's not a 70cm repeater transmitting for hours at a time.
