Hi all,

Just a brief account of yesterday activation on Boulsworth Hill-Lad Law.

Very Very Wet & Very Very Windy(as usual for me)

Mark G0VOF was ops on HF and myself on vhf/uhf, 2m SSB was very quiet with one contact on the FT290. 2m fm via the VX5 was again as impressive as last week on NW-044 and also a couple of calls on 70cm fm using the HT with the 6m extension on the rubber duck which seemed to give me the extra gain??

Pic on Flicker as below ,does not show how bad the WX was!!

Thanks for all that called,and I believe Mark will be doing his own report with a video when edited.

My compliments to Elaine, that is the best photo of the day by far!

I must be the odd looking lump in the bottom left hand corner of my tent HI!

Great fun & we really must do it again sometime soon :slight_smile:

Best 73 to you & Elaine,

Mark G0VOF

Hi Mark,

Lets hope for better WX next time
