The big five go mad in GM planning meeting is in full swing and the itinerary is as follows:-
GW7AAU & GW7AAV August 2007 SOTA summits week one (The build up) based at
Wanlockhead (Highest village in Scotland)– Lanarkshire NS871129
Sunday 19th 11:00 GM/SS-131 Hods Hill - 569m, 2 points
May have company here.
Tuesday 21st 11:00 GM/SS-056 Green Lowther - 732m, 4 points
We will try to be as early as possible on this summit so as to leave time for the second. No need to worry about parking we will be able to see these two from the cottage.
Tuesday 21st 14:00 GM/SS-123 Green Hill - 588m, 2 points
Bonus hill - We may well be late or postpone.
Thursday 23rd 12:00 GM/SS-064 Tinto - 711m, 4 points
Friday 24th 12:00 GM/SS-049 Coulter Fell - 748m, 4 points
Week two (The big push) based at Dunkeld – Perthshire NO025429
Sunday 26th 12:00 GM/CS-080 Meall Tairneachan – 787m, 4 points
Tuesday 28th 13:00 GM/CS-005 Schiehallion - 1083m, 8 points
This summit will most likely be a test of our limitations but you don’t know until you try. We may well be late.
Thursday 30th 13:00 GM/CS-029 Carn Liath - 975m, 6 points
If we manage the 8 pointer then we should be okay here, but another one where we may well be late.
Friday 31st 12:00 GM/CS-065 Ben Vrackie - 841m, 4 points
Due to our relative inexperience our estimated times may be wildly out but will hopefully improve as the holiday goes on. I intend to try and get as much information about any changes to stations who can update the alerts page and where possible to self spot by mobile phone, coverage may be a problem.
Intended operating frequencies 3.666 / 5.3985 / 7.060 / 7.118 / 14.285 / 28.490 SSB 145.375 / 433.450 FM all plus or minus QRM. Two metres SSB may also be available.
Any GM activators wishing to join us on these activations or meet up with us for a drink are welcome to do so. Please email me. My email is correct on QRZ.com.
