Thank you for your contributions.
Viki - We didn’t go up Slieve Meelmore so we missed that watchtower. Is there an Watchtower on the Air Award I wonder?
2E0XSD (I am sorry I don’t know your name). Sorry we didn’t hear you on GI/MM-011.
Pete - thanks for the info, I will check it out when I get home.
Very hot today, after 10 minutes we were taking off layers and the midges were flying. We had drizzle in the morning and the climb up Slieve Bearnagh was quite a slog but not quite as hard as Slievelamagan, There was no wind at all. The pocket rocket running at 40 watts with the dipole brought in 14 contacts including S2S contacts with Allan G4VPX/P and Barry M0IML/P on Stoney Cove Pike and Steve GW1ZVC/P on Snowdon. Other notable contacts included Bill M1AIX/P in St Ives, Cornwall. Our second summit of the day was Slieve Meelbeg, quite steep but a relatively short climb from the col. At the summit we were on the other side of the wall from the cairn, a big mistake as the whole area had been used as a toilet for sheep! We fired up the PR again and we logged 8 stations on this one. Thanks very much Darrell GI4KSO and Sean MW3PZO for the spots. Tomorrow is our last big day when we hope to do Eagle Mountain and Slievemoughmore.
Thanks for the support.
