Decided to get back in SOTA mode here after a break. Brisk walk up Shining TOR from Lay-by adj. to Cat & Fiddle, delayed setting up as it was busy with an organized walking party of 40+ people. Condx on 5MHz favoured the more distant stations, GMs very strong but struggled to to work G on CW. 40m CW good to Europe and one strong G. Think I may need to consider adding 80m to the antenna.
2m FM busy - first time I’ve tried VHF as I only put the IC-E90 in the bag as an afterthought, QSYd to 6m FM with GM7AAV, then from 6m to 70cm with G6GVI.
Thanks everyone for the contacts, also a pleasant surprise to get the winter bonus.
To John GW4BVE - were you waiting for me to vacate before you started?
