Here, Here Gerald, the best wish so far!
Good health in what we all hope will be a Happy New Year for you with renewed vigour!
I don’t ask for much…
Hummmm… Well First of all activate GM/ Summits and Bring my Bagpipes
And second reach the 200 Completes
But high level for all… A GOOD HEALTH…
I worked a French station from Worcestershire Beacon with just 5w and a dipole on 2m SSB earlier this year so it’s doable. Granted I think FM would have been pushing it!
All the best for 2018
Given a bit of ducting, Europe is reasonably easy to work from a SOTA summit, using 2m FM and a colinear…
Any Fast scan TV operation from a summit would be different. I’ve been building my digital amateur TV station for the last 10 months and hope to get it mounted on a sack barrow in order to operate proper /P in Shropshire. A TV mode type in the data base and SOTAWatch would help with this tough mode.
Some joint activations with great friends.
More Wainwrights and the Lake district where I’ve completed the G/LD SOTA with my Dad [82 years young] . The other 2 hill top portable awards schemes in UK are also very good.
But most of all, for my wife Ann-Charlotte to get better after Cancer and Chemotherapy. This looks promising and very likely

Better be for medicinal reasons or you’ll get yourself arrested!
I have a bottle of CU BOCAN waiting to be sampled once the bells strike midnight, obviously for medicinal purposes only !.
