First - To anyone who was hoping to catch me on GW/MW-011. The best (or should it be least worst) day was Friday 8th, when it was breezy with hazy sunshine on the coast. The summit was in the cloud with quite a strong wind blowing. Neither my XYL or I really fancied over an hour in those conditions. Perhaps it will be better when we are in the area again in late September.
Second - To anyone who hoped to get The Wrekin (G/WB-010) in the log on 70cm. The transmitters on near the summit were causing S1 - S2 QRM so I could only hear the strongest stations. Thanks to G4JZF for spoting, and G0TRB, and the best DX to 2W0PXW and GW1LDY who persevered until I got the calls and reports. Still, it proved the home-brew antenna worked.
Would the climate change boffins like to explain where the suggested swing to a Mediteranean type climate has gone?
