Firstly, Alain F6ENO was correct with 45) 2. I markedly this wrongly earlier on. (So Alain gets the point for this one, not Marc G0AZS - sorry!). My understanding was the same as Martyn’s - ie that it wouldn’t have made any difference, but if Marc says it’s 2, then it’s 2!

Martyn is correct with W5 - although the call area of W7 has 79 regions, this is split over several associations, not just one. It could be a little confusing, as the Database and SOTAwatch need to deal with W7 as “one association” in its structure. Martyn is also correct with 9H for 27. Q2 says “replaced by another summit”, not “replaced by another reference” - so incorrect.

Jimmy was correct with Cheriton Hill G/SE-015 being one of the 6th March 2002 starters - I managed to get bamboozled by US date format in MS Excel!

Roger is correct with High Street - drat, I thought that one might run a biot longer! Also correct with St Boniface Down G/SE-008 being closer to the coast (very marginally) then Swyre Head G/SC-012. I measured from the actual summit points BTW Roger. Also correct with Place Fell being Richard’s last CURRENT G unique!

Jonathan is correct with Bin of Cullen. But I have to tell you that GD/GD-004 is not in G… :wink:

Richard correct with 700m being the original winter bonus height for Wales.

summit”, not “replaced by another reference” - so
incorrect.

I did wonder what exactly you meant there…

Is it GM/SS-138, replaced by GM/SS-282 ? I’m sure that matches your criteria, but I’m not sure whether there was an earlier one.


#88

Indeed Martyn - correct.


#89

measured from the actual summit points BTW Roger.

Interesting… measuring with Google Earth, I got 0.88km for Swyre Head and 0.98 km for St Boniface Down. At this level we perhaps have to start worrying about what exactly you mean by “coast”. I’m still struggling to get St Boniface closer though.


#92

(d) Beinn Neobhis [Ben Nevis G/WS-001 - G8ADD]

The SOTA reference for Ben Nevis is GM/WS-001, not G/WS-001.

Sorry Tom, thought it might have been a trick question being an association with G as the first letter!

#99

Sorry Jimmy, no extra marks for pedantry (albeit a very fine piece of pedantry). Incorrect with both Dufton Pike and Swinside.

Iain - correct with LD-015.

Roger & Martyn - I am prepared to concede the point re Swyre Head / St Boniface Down. St Boniface Down has two points of apparently equal height, and it turns out that the one people tend to activate from is not the official grid reference in RHB - which is inside the transmitter compound! Hardly anything in it though.
