In a similar vein to a recent posting, I’d just like to say that I plan to do another trip of about 10 days to Wales for some SOTA activity.
I’ll be leaving London on Monday 8th September, planning to return on Thursday 18th. In between there will be a variety of summits on offer.
The most definite is NW-001 on Saturday 13th. This is because I will be joining a group of non-radio work colleagues on a weekend away and we’ve pencilled in what to them is the “big one” (they’ve never seen Tryfan!)for that day (might get NW-030 in on the way down). This will be a non-point scorer for me as I did 001 back in April.
Other than that I have no specific summits /dates planned, all will be weather dependent. I do want to concentrate some time on ticking the 2000 footers in the Glyders so 005, 003 and 006 will be on sometine (I’ve already done 004 this year so will avoid it if I can). Another possibility is to head to S.Wales first for SW-001/005 heading north on Tuesday. I’d also like to do my remaining uniques on the Lleyn peninsula (inspired by Tom’s report) and MAY try to get onto Bardsey if the boat is still running. I don’t have the facility to self spot (not that I know of anyway), sorry.
Activity is likely to be VHF only unless in the next two weeks I can find time to work out how to tune the Bandspringer/MFJ-902/FT-817 combination for HF.
Hope to speak to some of you soon
