Thanks both (also Tom and John, MW0XOT) for the s2s session; we had no idea this would happen. We were doing a long walk (Rhos Fach to Chwarel via Waun Fach) and had switched the HHs on in the hope of a contact with Allan only to find s2s in full flow. Apologies to whoever had the frequency before our intervention as all seemed to converge on it as soon as we made our presence known.
Waun Fach is amazing now; not only is the posh path extended some way to the north but I don’t recall the summit area ever being so dry and firm. When we last went there was a half-metre of snow everywhere and we just dug ourselves in on the sharp final slope.
Now training for Scotland so casual s2s only when planned long walks permit.
Week ahead not looking very good.
