The first week in May I am planning a few days in the Scottish highlands and, if the weather is kind, hope to activate 4 mountains.
As I only have 1 SOTA point to date I am looking for some advice on frequencies to activate on.
Has anyone got any recommended frequencies to use or is it just a matter of self-spotting the day before? Modes will be SSB and possibly FM. I will have my paddle key with me but probably not use it as my CW is rubbish.
I am not sure what antennas to take so I am going to take a selection to my local hill next week and experiment. I have a:
6m wire delta loop,
2m UDA 4 ele yagi
and a M0CVO Magnatena
All will be mounted on a 10m fiberglass SOTABEAMS mast
I hope to have time to get out some calls on 40, 6 and 2 m as a minimum.
