On The Roof Of The Photonics Building

In March 2012 I was invited by Shun (KE7UBS/JE1RIV) of the Boston University Amateur Radio Club, to help with some antenna work on the roof of the Photonics Building at Boston University. The view was fantastic though it was starting to get rather cold. While I was up there I happened to have my HT in scan mode and picked up a station It was the Derry NH repeater. From the roof of the building, I was able to speak with some of the users of that repeater using my rubber ducky and 5 watts output. Just goes to show you that getting the antenna high up is a good thing.
