Superb!!!

Just a pity I missed TW-003 but I am over the moon with getting four out of five TWs on 2m SSB with only one real struggle.

Thanks to John and Steve I really enjoyed chasing you both today.

Regards Steve GW7AAV

Thanks for all five today - only one unique but well worth it.
Surprised at how accurate Autoroute is :slight_smile:

Amazing effort given the distances involved. Only got one of them - TW-002 but that was S2S from SB-008 which was just great - S2S are all that I log in my chaser record - many thanks to Don G0NES for alerting us to that possibility.
Congratulations to John and Steve on achieving this feat.

Yes, amazing effort. Congratulations John and Steve! Pleased to hear so many providing support on all five summits, even going on until this late (for SOTA) hour.

73 and thanks for all 5 (4 were uniques),

Hi John, Steve

Great expedition, sorry I couldn’t catch you from my hole-in-the-ground QTH -heard the pileups you were generating but yourselves were barely there so didn’t call. (I’m a bit old-fashioned like that!)

Looking forward to news of your next exploit…

What a superb effort lads, a real marathon. Sorry I missed you on 004, but I was mobile and tried calling in but I just couldn’t make the trip, nice to catch Steve on 005 while static mobile at the top of the Horshoe Pass, at the parking spot for NW-042/-043.
Power to your elbows on a superb team effort, well done.

Many thanks for all the support chaps and XYL, Sharon, without all your support it’s even harder to keep going.

It great to get a pile up on 2M SSB!

Some simple facts, 06:00am start, 01:30 finish, 126 miles from the first summit parking spot to the last. Add another few for getting there and back and you done 390 miles… 14-15 miles walking.

John, M0JDK was a star driving. Thanks John, my turn next. (We alternate weeks, keeps the cost down and makes the driving more bearable), a few cups of tea kept John going on the trip home… hi hi

The reason we do so many in a day can be apparent, we have to drive so far we have to maximise our summits…

Anyway from us both, Thank you it’s much appreciated… now I better get working out the next mad trip!!

Devon and Cornwall anyone?

In reply to 2E0KPO:

Devon and Cornwall anyone?

Yep, looking at the 3rd week of July next year. Would be good to have a ‘gang’ down there for a few S2S - and beers.

Well done guys. Sorry the advertised SE-005 didn’t happen so i didn’t get to work you. Unforeseen circumstances left me running late and with an urgent dash across to West London to get in front of a TV by 8pm!!! It was worth it.

Still stuck on 249 :frowning:
