Video of The Moment Colin Made his First Homebrew Contact With Australia



Our British cousins are not a wildly emotional people.  The word "phlegmatic" is sometimes used when describing them.  Stiff upper lip and all that. But as you can see at the 51 second mark in this short video, contacting Australia whilst using a new scratch-built homebrew BITX20 on battery power from a windy English hilltop WILL get those English fists pumping and those thumbs up.  The wind drowns out Colin's voice, but his gestures say it all.  Well done Colin!  Brilliant!
