It was reported that on Saturday 20th November, on 144.330mhz and later on 70.475mhz a transmission that we thought had been lost forever!!
The lesser spotted LIMA ALPHA ECHO was heard to be warbling its unmistakable cry of CQ SOTA, CQ for Summits on the air!!
After a lengthy time with the Veterinary Surgeons and its Talon now fully repaired, it was perched on Black Hill (G/SP-002) yesterday in cloud base for approx 2 hours.
Thanks to all below for the contacts especially those on 4 meters:
2m ssb. 2E0FSR, 2E0WJC/P, M3VFB, G6ODU, 2E0BMO (5 x 2)
4m fm. G4XIV, G7RNX/P(S2S on LD-050), G1BAL, G7HAH (4 x 4)
= 9 contacts in all with some long great Qso’s
Thanks also to Alex for the only S2S of the day
Hopefully now its Talon is mended we will be hearing its cry more often and I for one am glad of its return !!
