HI Alan,

Welcome to SOTA and Im sorry to say you will have to get used to the wet stuff,as much as I dont like it,Im glad someone else has it following them round the hills ( HI Hi)

As everyone here will tell: SOTA is more addictive than you realise and far more better for your health than other addictions!!

Hope to catch you soon from a summit near me or even better S2S

Best 73

Glad you had a succesful first activation, & that there are two of you to share carrying the gear :wink:

2m FM during a weekday was probably a the best bet for the most contacts, but at weekends or with a prior alert on Sotawatch you may find 2m SSB giving you more distant contacts.

With an FT817 there is of course HF to play with as well, if you wish, which can be a whole new ball game :wink:

Welcome to Sota to you & Chezz :slight_smile:
