Pen y Fan GW/SW-001...no snow


#1

Happy New Year everyone.

My New Year has kicked off really well with 3 SOTA summits in my log the latest being Pen y Fan GW/SW-001 yesterday No snow as yet but it was -5C and lower on top but a great morning on the radio with 49 contacts from visits to 2m, 60m and 80m. Big thank you to all the Chasers and Activators

It’s all on my blog plus a few more. https://gw4vpx.blogspot.com/ 73 Allan GW4VPX

I’ve never walked in those hills but picture of the three summits look as though there;s a fair amount of erosion.

Did you see any aspirant SAS types…:grinning:?

Hi David

Nice range of mountains…quite a bit of erosion on the paths due to the thousands that walk them each year…the Rangers work hard to minimize the damage.

Yes, often see military activity. I was challenged yesterday with the question ‘Military?’ :grinning:

Nice views Allan. Need to venture into GW land soon. Those VHF pile-ups are stuff of dreams up here in LD land…
