Hi - The title says it all, got to the top of the hill in good time, although I had a phone signal I didn’t manage to get a good enough signal to get any data and didn’t manage to spot myself!
Q) Is there a G text gateway that allows spotting?
Tried 2m FM, which was dead - but given the hill is surrounded by even more hills in every direction with no centres of population wasn’t too suprised. ( Used J pole up mast )
Then tried a linked dipole ( FT 817 ) on 60m - Nothing heard. 40 and 20 were very busy with contests so in the end only managed 3 contacts ( 17m and 15m ). (SSB 5w linked dipole - Canary Islands)
So - what next time? ( apart from the obvious one of continuing to brush the cobwebs off my Morse -unused in 25 yrs…)
More power? ( and less speed on the way up? )
Paul - gradually drying out after a wet descent.
