Hard Work on GW/NW-042 Moel Famau


#1

Apologies to the chasers who were trying to work me on 40m this morning.

Armed with only the modest 6m fishing pole antenna, I managed to work just one station G0RQL, Don in Devon, despite calling for about ten minutes. I heard one other station calling me, but was unable to make the copy. John G1STQ, left his station to tell me that some of the 2m chasers were trying to call me, however, I could hear nothing.

I then qsy’d to 17m, self spotted and worked about eight of the European regulars, before the band dried up. My last throw of the dice was 15m, however, with the exception of one contact into VK and a couple of Europeans this proved almost fruitless too.

Band conditions were not that hot, so I chucked the towel in at about 1245 with just 15 contacts on HF.

At least the 3 winter bonus points made me feel a bit better :wink:

…But you still moaned all the way up, all the way down and all the way home!

I would also like to thank the chasers yesterday and appologise to any station who tried to work me. Conditions not too good.

Having sacrificed my own activation to help ‘The Moaning One’ and his aerial problems…he then goes and rubs my nose in it with a 5/9 to Skippy in Queensland.

Thanks.

Looking forward to the next one,

Mike,

Make sure you log your activation correctly - and clarify for chasers.

Was it GW/NW-042 Moel or Gamelin, or GW/NW-044 Moel Famau?

Cheers Tom, it was a typo in the thread title. The activation was alerted, spotted and logged correctly as GW/NW-044 Moel Famau.

Oi, I don’t get this sort of grief from M0TUB or G4XEE…

Skippy in Queensland.

Just a rig check for some of us, OM :wink:

Thanks.

Looking forward to the next one,

Wish I could say the same ;-))))

Go and play with your new friends then…

I will find us a nice summit over Christmas.
Hopefully something with a very narrow path and a very long drop :slight_smile:
