This Sunday, 13 June 2021, there will be two contests of interest to portable operators:
- The second RSGB 144 MHz backpackers contest takes place from 09:00z to 13:00z.
- The Practical Wireless 144 MHz QRP contest takes place from 09:00z to 16:00z.
It should be a great opportunity for lots of 2m activity across the UK. I thought a thread to share SOTA plans and to encourage people to get involved would be a good idea.
I intend to enter the RSGB contest in the 5W “Backpacker” section. The Brecon Beacons will be my closest high-ground this weekend, and the weather forecast looks good! My “plan A” is to get up early enough to summit Waun Fach (GW/SW-002) before the contest starts. If that fails (i.e. I am too lazy) then “plan B” is to activate Sugarloaf (GW/SW-011).
I can see one more alert for a contest station so will be looking out for an S2S opportunity with @MW0UCL on Fan Brycheiniog (GW/SW-003).
Does anyone else have 2m activation plans for the weekend that they want to share?
