Remember me? Well, yes I’m still alive but horse and I have been so busy that everything else has been put on hold for now. We’ve got a break from competing this weekend so we’re going for something a bit different. I’m going to attempt an activation on horseback. It’s within the rules but as far as I’m aware no one has tried it.
Please keep the overs short as he doesn’t take to standing around for long. There’s plenty of space at the summit so I’ll try walking around to keep him occupied. If we stop in a null, it won’t be for long. I’ll be using the FT-817 with the antenna slant polarised but of course it will be well over 2m agl so it won’t be your average HH activation. I’ll be using voice recording for logging due to a lack of spare hands.
I’ve posted an alert (which might change if the WX turns) and I’ll self-spot and/or call via GB3UK which is on-site. I see that Matt G8XYJ has posted the same time / mode from Burrow so a S2S might be possible as it’s pretty well LOS.
I’m looking forward to my first activation in over a year and to catching up with as many of you as possible.
