Place Fell


#1

For information, whatever Steve heard on 5MHz at 15:35z today was not me. We did not arrive on Place Fell until 16:20z, and as we still had to walk back to Glenridding the activation was 2m FM only.

In reply to M1MAJ:

I thought so when I saw the later spot, but who was it? The TX was very weak and I heard CQ SOTA or something that sounded like it at least twice. I felt it was best to spot as someone might have been able to confirm or deny what I thought I heard.

Thanks for the contacts we did have.

I think that this link will show nicely why working Place Fell from Connah’s Quay would have been marginal yesterday.
