I had a great time activating Hope Mountain this weekend on 10GHz. Light showers were a nuisance but in 2.5 hours I managed 17 contacts with best DX being 316 km on 2xSSB (Ditchling Beacon, near Brighton). Several other SOTA summits were on but only mine was SOTA-qualifying as far as I’m aware. SOTA chaser Mike G4BLH was out portable and I was able to give him his first SOTA summit on 10GHz over a 90km path.
After Hope Mountain I moved to Axe Edge in Derbyshire where I made a further 11 contacts, bringing the total to 28. My best result yet on 10GHz.
My 10G system system is 1 Watt to 40cm dish. 2m talkback, 30W and 3 element beam.
