Apologies for having go QRT suddenly today on GW/NW-003. It rained hard and eventually my bothy bag leaked. My poor QCX mini started to make a loud static noise and I couldn’t hear any of the callers. I know a lot were still calling, sorry.
Fearing my radio had got to damp I reluctantly pulled the plug and packed up. I made a couple of contacts on my VHF handie but it was too wet to continue.
Typically, as I made my way down the sky cleared so at least I got to enjoy the views. After drying out my QCX mini I plugged it in this evening and thankfully it is working fine.
My activation on the first summit GW/NW-004 Y Garn went well, band conditions on 20m seemed in good shape with plenty of callers. I appreciated the patience of one DL station who I just couldn’t get the callsign right. My dyslexia must have kicked in as I could read the callsign fine but just couldn’t get the callsign correct in my log hi!
2m FM was productive too, nice to hear the regular chasers.
Thanks for the contacts and S2S, till next time,
