In reply to G4YSS:
The Uniques experience is just that - something new every time we go out. Wish I had a tenner for every time either Paul or I have said “it doesn’t look like this on Google Earth”. Generally the adventure starts at the parking spot (assuming we can find it!) and it doesn’t stop until the satnav is back in control taking us back home.
Yes, it was rather windy on Shining Tor - much the same as it had been on Kinder Scout earlier, but of course at a lower altitude. You can see my mast bending and considering that’s not the thinnest sections of the pole, I’m pleased it survived. By the way, both Paul and I always wear headphones - doesn’t make for a good video I’m afraid (you note that I couldn’t hear Steve say hello), but it certainly helps with the weak signals. My 817 lives inside a plastic box with the dual band linear and these are permanently inside the backpack, so again not a good view for a video, but it saves the rig from bad weather… and we’ve had some of that on occasion!
