Last week I was in Ireland and activated 5 summits.
Monday it was Slievereagh. In nice sunny wx I went up the summit and made a lot of QSO’s on 40/20 meters, until there was no one calling.
Wednesday it was Knckmealdown and the Knocknafallia. Vy low clouds and not much to see on the summit. I made a lot of QSO’s on 40/20 meters. Until no one was calling.
Friday it was Cush. Started with a lot of wind. Up on the summit it was not easy. Vy strong winds and snow. My pole was blowing away. So I made only 12 QSO’s on 40 meter. My hands were frozen. Quick down and getting warm.
Sunday It was Slievecallan. An easy one with the XYL. Also al lot of wind, but sunny.
Made a lot of contacts ( 8 or 9 ) with K-stations.
