I’d just like to give a heads up on my last large GW adventure for the year of 2022. If successful on this day, it will result in all GW summits activated for me. Please find below my agenda for this coming Saturday 3rd September:
Mynydd Twyn-glasGW/SW-019 at approx 05:45 UTC
Mynydd y GlynGW/SW-027 at approx 07:45 UTC
Cefn EglwysilanGW/SW-025 at approx 09:15 UTC
Garth HillGW/SW-034 at approx 10:45 UTC
Craig yr AlltGW/SW-037 at approx 12:00 UTC
Mynydd y LanGW/SW-024 at approx 13:30 UTC
Mynydd MachenGW/SW-030 at approx 14:45 UTC
WentwoodGW/SW-033 at approx 17:00 UTC
I will operate on 60/40/20 SSB and 2m FM. All above times are in UTC and I will try to stick to them as best as I can. I will also spot on every frequency I call out on. It would be great to work some stations throughout the day from this great supportive SOTA community!
I stay clear of contest stations when I’m on summit, it was just a joke stating I should get 4 itl. Hopefully I’ll find a clear frequency if the contest has begun while I’m on a summit. Thanks for the heads up
I believe that you will not be celebrating your GW SOTA completion of successful on Saturday Ben until you’ve activated Bryn Y Fan GW/MW-018 due to this after Saturday being the only GW SOTA summit that you have not activated in 2022.
Congratulations to Ben GW4BML who is now the first ever SOTA activator to activate all the SOTA summits in GW within a single calendar year. This is a massive achievement and I now challenge you to activate all the G SOTA summits within a single calendar year as this hasn’t been done yet.
Hi Ben. Many congratulations on your incredible(/mad?) dash round 8 summits today and thus completing all GW in much less than one year. Sorry you didn’t hear me on Carneddau (GW/MW-023 near Builth Wells) when I tried for a s2s but you were rather intermittent to me so it would have been a challenge. I could hear G0RQL and GW6OVD working you much better than I could hear you - presumably a better path and probably more power.
The rain didn’t reach us on either summit (also GW/MW-022) but I think you may have been in the firing line. Hope the ankle held up well today and that you will let it (and you!) have a rest for at least a few hours!!
73 to you and the family Viki
