In reply to G3VQO:
Transmissions from Leith Hill, Surrey (SOTA G/SE-002)
The Society has a privileged arrangement with the National Trust which
allows it and members to operate from the highest point in the South
East of England, for which it pays £50 per annum. Arrangements can be
made via the Society’s Vice-Chairman, Jon Weller. (
You make it sound like the Dorking and District Amateur Radio Society has exclusive rights to operate from Leith Hill. Can this be right? According to SOTAWatch, it has been activated 55 times, including a recent activation by the ubiquitous G4WSB/P.
In G4ERP’s note on this web site, he says all that was necessary was to speak informally to the NT Warden upon arrival, just to confirm that there was no objection to a SOTA activation.
Goodness knows there are enough access restrictions to summits on the UK without creating new ones!
(By the way, I pay almost £50 a year to the National Trust - my personal membership fee.)
