Chris M0RSF/P quick G/SP-005 Pendle Hill activation

Today I did a quick 2m FM activation of a very cold and windy G/SP-005 Pendle Hill.

G/SP-005 Pendle Hill dominates the surrounding landscape.

I didn’t stay long at the Summit and as soon as nobody returned to my calls I packed up and descended. A total of 7 contacts were logged including S2S with Martin M7BIA/P on G/LD-050 Gummers How, Alan M0VPM/P on G/LD-011 High Street and Neil M7LLA/P on G/MP-032 Cracoe Fell.
I also logged Mick M7MCG/P who was having a stroll on Weets Hill wearing shorts!

Not like me to take a selfie but it was nice to be back at the car.

Pendle Hill was busy with people today (as it usually is on a weekend) so it was difficult to make
a video but I did manage to put something together…

Thanks for the qso Chris, lovely signal to me. There were a few “shorts people” running around on High Street doing Wainwrights, looked pretty cold to me. I was able to shed a few layers later when the sun got going and ended with a glorious spring day.

Thanks Geoff. I would have dome more photos and video had it not been so busy.

Thanks for the S2S QSO Alan. My antenna was only about 2 feet off the ground.
On the ascent the wind wasn’t too bad but at the summit the wind chill was definitely more noticable.
I was going to take some HF gear too but I’m glad that I didn’t.
