Thanks for all the contacts today, sorry that HF was cut short on Moel Llyfnant but the roach pole collapsed and I thought that I’d push on to the next summit because of the poor weather rather than set it up again. My poor CW was made even worse by the cold weather, well, that’s my excuse anyway
I did try calling DH8DX/P for S2S on 30m from Moel Llyfnant but he couldn’t hear me. But I managed to work GW6WRW/P on SW-002 and Rob & Audrey G4RQJ/P on LD-031 for S2S 2m FM on Arenig Fawr.
The two summits in fact were very cold and shrouded in cloud all day. combined with the gusty wind we didn’t want to stay on the summits too long.
Saw a fox just below the summit of Arenig Fawr, I don’t know who was surprised the most. I haven’t seen a fox that high up before in Snowdonia.
I gave HF a miss on Arenig due to the weather (-5C), sorry to anyone waiting for a QSO. I’ll post a short video on the SOTA section on YouTube.
Thanks for those who spotted us.
73’s to all & festive greetings
