Well just as long as the wires are crossed here and not the summits during the event we should be okay. I also hope that all the predictions and speculation don't upset the ionosphere gods...... not as though I believe in such things! LOL.
Finally I have made my choice of antennas, pole and other kit. The backpack will weigh around 16kg, so I am pleased that I have little over a kilometre to walk......... memories of days when I used to carry aluminium poles and an aluminium 5 element yagi.
I wish everyone all the best for their activations. I don't believe in luck, so just do your best and I will raise a glass this evening to the success of the event. See you on the bands.
