What happened to WB-001?


#1

Might be a stupid question, but other associations have a summit 001…so where is G/WB-001?


#2

In reply to G1STQ:

It was kidnapped by the Welsh.

In short, the trig point is just barely in England, this placed it in WB. However a resurvey found a slightly higher point on the Welsh side of the border so the summit was re-allocated to GW/SW.

Hi Brian,

The trig point on Black Mountain GW/SW-041 is on the Welsh side of the border and it is 26m below the true summit. Hence the trig point itself is outside the activation zone.

In reply to M3EYP:
Looking at the map it seems like the activation zone is both in G and GW.

What call to use?

If I use both, can I get double bubble points? :wink:

Hi John,

You can activate Black Mountain GW/SW-041 on the Welsh side using GW1STQ/P or on the English using G1STQ/P. You do not get double points if you decide to activate Black Mountain GW/SW-041 on both side of the border.

In reply to M3EYP:

True, Jimmy, I meant to say the high point, the border runs along the top of the ridge in that area, but they found a higher point on the Welsh side. Personally, I’d like to go up there with a JCB and move the highest point back to where it used to be, GW/SW has enough high mountains already! :wink:
