I will be heading up to Skipton area tomorrow (Saturday) for NP-029 & NP-028. It’s a bit of a trek (2 hour drive each way) but there’s really no summits anywhere near Doncaster where I’m working at present.
As it is forecast to be damp, and because I’ll need to be back in Doncaster for soundcheck by 1630z, being able to get away with 2m FM handheld + rubber duck activations would suit me best. However, on my recent visits to these summits, getting contacts on 2m FM has been challenging - which is both surprising and unusual compared to my optimistic perception and observation of summits and 2m activity around the country generally.
So I reckon I’ll be on Sharp Haw in the morning and Rombalds Moor around lunchtime, if chasers in Yorkshire could be kindly monitoring 145.500MHz FM
