LD-013 Old-man-of-coniston


#1

Me, my brother(Ian)and G6DDQ, Decided we was going to do the old-man again, Picked my brother (Ian)up from Rochdale, Then back home again as i forgot my jacket, Made our way over to Rossendale where we met up with Myke g6ddq. We arrived at Coniston Cafe at 9-00am, Breakfast then up the hill, was on top for 11-30am, Myke called on 145mhz had a few calls then qsy’d over to 4 meters, Then i got my hand-held out and made a few contacts with regular chasers,(TNX). I made 6 s2s calls, G0VWP/P=NP-008, M1AAV/P=LD-008, G4KKI/P=LD001, M3OOL/P + M0RCP/P=NP-029, G1INK/P=NP-018, And G4RQJ/P=NP-009,
Then we made our way down the old quarries and over Little Arrow Moor, down onto Walna Scar Road back to the car park, quick cup of coffee at the cafe in Coniston again, before making our way home down the A65 this time, 27 Photos can be viewed on flickr.com http://www.flickr.com/photos/26995176@N00/
Many thanks to the chasers and activators out today on 145mhz.
