I’ve activated Corndon Hill a few times but today I was treated to some particularly lovely views courtesy of an inversion layer and some valley fog. Tee-short weather, kind of.
Some pictures from my phone…
A short but sharp walk up (and a reminder to gain some fitness):
The shack for the afternoon:
Cadair Idris on the horizon:
Time to pack up and head home:
Thank you to all the chasers on 2m ssb and fm.
Hi Mike, fantastic photos. Thanks.
Some great photo’s Mike, that’s one of my favourite local hills, always seems to be windy when I go up it though.
Sorry I missed you.
Good to catch you on 2m SSB Mike, similarly spectacular views from where I was.
Were you operating on 23cms too? A spot came up on my phone saying you were but may have been an error.
I had the IC9700 with me but left the 23cm antenna at home - still haven’t tried it out.
Yes, just 1W on FM from my DJ-G7 though. No luck this time.
Many thanks for the brilliant photos Mike. It was awful over to the east. I had to endure a very crowded A1 with low cloud and mist and intermittent drizzle making the driving very tedious. My thoughts drifted to activating a summit, but unfortunately I am finished for this year with family commitments now taking priority. Maybe I’ll give Corndon a visit next year.
Thanks for the QSO & the great pics, Mike. As I said, that’s the first chase of MW-013 I’ve done from my Birkenhead QTH, probably due to the lift that was on. A Happy Christmas to you & yours & here’s to more QSOs in 2022. 73 John G0MHF.
