Richard I didn’t quite manage the first QSO, but I do have most of the activation recorded if you want a copy. My email address is on my QRZ page.
Well done Richard - I have been following your alerts and you have a lot of good summits under your belt!
Many congratulations Richard! Welcome to the herd.
Thank you for all the summits recently. Enjoy the rest of your day and safe journey home.
Many congratulations on achieving Mountain Goat in such a short time and all the best for the future.
Congratulations Richard, I’ve enjoyed following your amazing Goathood journey and those stunning photos on Twitter.
73, Andrew VK1AD
Top achievement! Nice big push at the end there!
Well done, Richard and thanks for the many s2s along the way. I hope you will not rest on your laurels with just a single Goat
Well done Richard, glad to have our 2m QSO this morning as you achieved Mountain Goat.
Well done Richard, thanks for the S2S from Gummer’s How G/LD-050 this morning.
Sue G1OHH, being such a prolific chaser in the Lake District, was a fitting fourth qualifying contact.
Welcome to the herd Richard. Thanks for all the contacts and s2s along your journey.
You were 4/1 with me on your Goat summit today but just couldn’t make myself heard with 50w and 5 ele beam…would have been a good one.
73 and congratulations.
Well done Richard! I was diligently following you on APRS making good progress to Stoney Cove Pike and High Street but unfortunately the frequencies chosen were in use (Sundaymorning-itis) by stations in Yorkshire rag chewing on them wiping you out, but you were there on both summits underneath them, my problem and not yours.
Congratulations on becoming a Mountain Goat!
Congratulations Richard on achieving Mountain Goat.
You didn’t miss a beat there Karl, I was still working the pileup when you posted
The journey to MG took 1 year 11 months and all told I hiked 1,145km with 73,800m of climbing. I logged 2,096 QSOs across 174 activations.
Allan, sorry I missed you I was keeping an ear out but never heard you.
Phil, now I understand why I was hearing you on the calling channel but not after QSY’ing… I did open the squelch and call you direct a couple of times but no dice.

MG in 174 activations. That’s some going! Last I checked it was taking me around 1000 activations to rack up 1000 points!
Do you have any recent activation photos that show you yourself that I can use for SOTA publicity?
Sorry not got any good photos… usually out on the hills by myself. Not sure if that is a joke about G/SP-015 The Cloud Tom
Indeed that is Tom. Well done Richard! I checked my records and see that it took me 4 years and 5 months and 305 activations. Very enjoyable nonetheless.
Well done Richard, good going!
Congratulations again, Richard, I’m glad I worked you on your MG activation. It’s always a pleasure to chase you & I look forward to many more! 73s John.
