I am having one of those days. If I had a teddy bear I would throw it out of my pram. I started the morning thinking I would be able to knock one of the hills on my most wanted list off. Robert GW0PEB was doing NW-050, which as you can see below is one of only 2 NW summits I need. Understandably due to snow on the summit Robert only did VHF. The frustrating part was I heard a brief snatch of Roberts voice on 2m SSB and then nothing. It has been similar on most of my remaining most wanted with activators either unable to do HF due to weather or being so weak due to conditions that I just got a single snatch of someone else’s report. To add to my frustration it took me forever to get through to Gerald GW4OIG on NW-017, could not hear Walt G3NYY and Zoli HA3HK/P did not seem to be hearing me. This SOTA lark is meant to be fun, but maybe I am just too addicted. Is it just me or does anyone else suffer from SOTA syndrome?
My most wanted list…
* G/SE-007 - Crowborough, 242m, 1 points. * GW/MW-015 - Bryn Amlwg, 488m, 1 points. * GW/MW-019 - Gwastedyn Hill, 477m, 1 points. * GW/MW-032 - Upper Park, 352m, 1 points. * GW/MW-036 - Pen-crug-melyn, 326m, 1 points. * GW/NW-050 - Gyrn Ddu, 522m, 2 points. * GW/NW-060 - Mynydd-y-briw, 341m, 1 points. * GW/SW-017 - Hirfynydd, 481m, 1 points. * GW/SW-028 - Mynydd y Betws, 374m, 1 points. * GW/SW-031 - Mynydd Uchaf, 358m, 1 points.
Merry Christmas to all my fellow SOTA addicts.
