First HF activation for ages, and it was up to G/WB-004, Titterstone Clee Hill again.
I was in 2 minds after some awful weather in the morning (rain, fog, and more rain) but around mid day, at least the rain had cleared.
Getting to the car park, it was quite obvious that it was going to be quite damp, the pot holes in the ground overflowing with muddy water

So, up the familiar path to the summit. The clouds closed in, reducing the visibility to a few meters. I looked for the outline of the NATS buildings… only to find that they’ appear to have been demolished since the last time I was up there…
The remains of the NATS buildings… I have no idea when they were demolished!
I quickly had the antenna up (20M linked vertical with 3 radials) and the rig attached, only to be delayed by explaining what I was up to to a group of walkers.

Eventually getting on air, not a fantastic amount of of QSOs, 2 to NA, including a s2s with KI4SVM on W4C/EM-066 (Thanks for persevering!) the rest being in the EU, all on 20m
I rounded off the day with a s2s with Jordan M3TMX/P just down the road on G/WB-020 with the 2m handheld as I finished packing up
Thanks to all the chasers, and the organisers for arranging the event!
