Montague Island 2011 Dx'pedition Iota OC-223 with vk2hv working EU on 20m

Making contact with VK2HV / Paul , using a Cobra 148 GTL CB radio completely modified for 10m ( 12 watts output ) ... Antenna is a J pole designed fr 10m ( 27 feet long on my 30ft tower ) ... It is remarkable how good the receiver is , and the NB really knocks out all my static . Meter isnt working, so I need to change that .
