Thursdays activation SP-015 was very uneventful, even struggling on 2m, managing just 16 contacts.
QSY’d to 15m where Wednesdays lift seemed to have evaporated
Nice to work Alan G0JNJ/M and Simon M0TGT (his first 15m contact) both from the Macclesfield Radio Club as well Bob G6ODU and Steve G1INK who was monster signal from Buxton.
On the DX front, a nice contact with SOTA activator WA2USA who noticed my spot from his home qth and was delighted to bag The Cloud for his SOTA log.
Contacts with Jordan, Bosnia, Cyprus and half a dozen more European countries. Also, quite an uncommon call logged from 5Q, Zealand, I think. Finally, VU2XO in Mumbai, who just calls himself Patel, probably the most difficult contact I’ve ever made on a SOTA activation. This poor man worked his socks off to get me into his log! It must have been a full three minutes before he finally grasped my call and said …is that M6MMM/P? If only all radio hams demonstrated the patience of this gentleman.
Thanks to all the chasers…
No SOTA this weekend, been roped into doing Railways on the Air from the club…
