A bad back and high winds nearly caused me to pull out of this contest session but I went out anyway.
Gun was very windy indeed and the horn looked like a good choice of antenna. Carrying the gear across the moor with my backpain required Ibuprofen in profusion. Four contacts in an hour on 10G qualified it for SOTA. Contacts were: G4KUX (Bishop Auckland CW), GW3TKH/p (Cefn y Galchen SSB), G3ZME/p (Brown Clee SSB) and G3LRP (Wakefield SSB).
Next I drove to Winter Hill where the walk was easier and there was a wall to give me some shelter. A further hour netted G3PHO/p (Pocklington CW), M0DTS/p (N York Moors SSB), G3ZME/p (Brown Clee FM) and MW1FGQ (Holywell SSB). Another summit qualified for SOTA on 10G.
All done with 1W and a horn + 2m talkback (no KST).
On my return home I glanced at KST and saw that Ian, GW8OGI was out on Halkyn Mountain trying to make 10G contacts. I nipped out yet again to a local site and we easily completed with end-stopping signals across the Cheshire Plain.
More Ibuprofen and bed followed in quick succession.
10GHz is a lot of fun for SOTA - why not give it a try?
