Below is the distance between Chirs and Lewis, about 7.57 Miles from the Google Map.

Second, He made calls on the 70cm band and 2 meters band to see if anyone’s monitoring on 3:08 and 3:29. But there is no people on the air.

He walked around, and showed us the Ofcom monitoring station.

Then he made a call with Dave(G0BJK), another ham radio friend. To test the IP67 radio RT87. With the video time on 4:35, With the distance 10.47miles from the Google Map.
