Welcome to amateur radio and SOTA! I live in East Daviot and as Colwyn said I am a double goat! I have been out of action since a climbing accident in February. Still rather limited in my walking abilities but range and fitness improving!
There is a local amateur radio club. IDARS (Inverness and district amateur radio society) that started up earlier this year. We run training courses. Should be running an intermediate course fairly soon if you are interested. We meet twice a month on Wednesday evenings. There is a facebook site you can find out more info.
I would be very happy to meet up and share my SOTA knowledge. When my foot is up to it a joint activation would be good.
You can contact me via email at email@example.com.
I am off the French Pyrenees next week for a fortnight.
The next IDARS meeting is next Wednesday. Please email me for details.
I look forward to meeting soon
