Summit of Blencathra Sunday 17th February 2013


I must apologise to some of the people who contacted me on the Summit of Blencathra on Sunday 17th February 2013 around midday, the wind was so strong it blew my logsheet away with my first three contacts in.
Sorry about that I will try to make sure it does not happen again.

In reply to M6RWP:

Hopefully the first three that you contacted will see this post and let you know the QSO details Ron. I once mislaid a logsheet and was able to reconstruct the entire activation from chasers letting me have the details of the QSOs… then I found the logsheet tucked away in a side pocket of my backpack for safe keeping. One might say too safe!

Hi Ron,

I think i was the second person to work you on Blencathra. It would have been GM4WHA as i was at home at the time. I cannot remember the signal reports as i am at work at the moment but i worked you at 12:37.

Re summit of Blencathra when my log sheet blew away losing the first three contacts, two of which have now been recovered.

Thanks for your interest.

Might be worth asking on the WOTA website Ron. Probably someone fairly local as you always tend to work the strongest stations first. :slight_smile:
