Thanks to the stations that worked me on Bredon Hill today. My apologies for the awful audio on ssb which was down the awful wind, although moving to a more sheltered position at the suggestion of Richard G4ERP did not help much but did at least get me out of the worst of it. My headset kept getting blown off, and the dog kept running off with my rucksack!
I missed some stations, and heard my callsign very faintly from one before i lost it having failed to identify the caller, so really sorry if this was you. Antenna was Sotabeams MFD. i didn’t even try to put up the 40m antenna.
There was a lot of QRM around 144.310.
Conditions underfoot were poor as the ground seem to be frozen solid below about 2 inches of mud which made for an interesting ascent, and somewhat alarming descent.
