John (G4YSS) will be on the air today (Sunday 19th March) using the club call GX0OOO/p but this is NOT a summit.
He will be attempting to activate WAB Square 0V00, the most difficult square in the UK.
Located almost totally in the North sea, with the exception of the extreme SW corner, which just touches the corner of North Yorkshire (10 miles North of Scarborough) between high and low tides, it is located at the base of a 500 ft cliff
Due to the rugged nature of the terrain and the need to carry all equipment, using ropes, it is rarely activated on the air. The descent must be timed to arrive just as the tide recedes, so allowing time for set -up and close down before the tide turns.
He will be activating mainly on the Worked all Britain frequencies 7.160, 3.760 & 14.285. SSB, with the possibility of other bands and CW if time permits.
set up antennas and equipment.
1400 Low tide
1530 QRT (absolutely) John has to pack up the station and start to climb the cliff before the area is submerged.
