As some of you may already know I have started training Air Cadets at my local Squadron (Warbreck 2454)which Nathan (2E0OCC) my son attends. We are hoping to use radio as part of their adventure training during the summer months.
The squadron is having a camp over weekend 26th - 28th Feb in the lakes and some of the Cadets are doing their Silver navigation award which will take them over Baystones. I will be part of their group, Although not teaching them navigation (I would be lost without Ian (2E0EDX or my Garmin Hi)
Anyway the idea is as follows QRV around midday on Baystones. I’ll be on 2M and Nathan will be on 70cm with a hand held.
Nathan and I as well as anyone in the group with a call sign will qualify the hill. I also need 1 S2S to get my 25 S2S Class 3.
I then would request that some stations remain around to allow any of my students under my supervision to pass greatings to them.
The idea is to encourage them towards obtaining their license and therefore get them out doing SOTA during the summer months when camping and doing adventure activities.
Hope this meets with all your approval.
Look forward to working you all Staurday
