23cm

Made my first 23cm QSO from home, after 3 years of having that band. To G7RNX in Dalton, a 7km path that isn't line of sight.
I was using an Alinco handheld indoors upstairs and Alex had an Icom base station into a 2/70/23 colinear.
Signals weren't too good, with my 1 watt from the handheld's rubber duck only being received when I was by the window (the window was in about the right direction).
