Easter 23cms fun

I’ve just spotted an alert from Gerald G4OIG and Paul G4MD that they’ll be on Seatallan LD-025 on Easter Monday. The WX forecast is not bad for up here so time to find a summit where 23mcs is guaranteed to work. Yeah, I’ll make and effort to take the battery this time too!

A check on the panoramas website shows a lot of summits are LOS to Seatallan. One of which is Cairnsmore of Carsphairn SS-038 which is where I will be. There’s a fair number of summits in England that are LOS to Carsphairn too. There’s a list at the end of this message.

So it seems to me that it would be nice if a few of the 23cms capable activators could be on some of those summits making some G-GM, G-GW, G-G and GM-GM contacts a strong possibility.

If you think you’ll be QRV just tag a comment on this thread.

Woooo! Count me in. We intend to be down in Gatehouse until Monday, so I will probably manage Cairnharrow (again) - nothing more strenuous since we’ll be heading back later in the day. I’ll alert for Cairnharrow, the S2S will be good if we can get them!

I somehow doubt I would make it from G/CE-005 Wendover Woods but there is always 5meg. Good luck with the S2S Andy.

Hmmm,
I’m out with XYL - no radio… :o(
