G and GW all summits Activated

Last one today. G/LD-044 High Rigg.
Thanks to all the chasers on 40m and 20m SSB. 2M FM yielded exactly 0 contacts despite 20W and a decent antenna.
Great to get so many regulars on this final unique.
Special thanks to Derek 2E0MIX for coming out to join me.

333 summits in total.
I really only properly got “stuck in” trying to finish the lot about 3 years ago… then the pandemic struck.
Best one… can’t pick. Mostly it would be the weather that singles one out. So the brilliant inversion and Fog Bow on Fountains Fell G/NP-017 takes some beating.

Worst one… easy. Dundry Down G/SC-011. Landfill site!

Some from today


Congratulations Gerald on your achievement, well done. :+1:

Thanks for your report and photos too.

Congratulations Gerald.

So good to get you yesterday and be 4th in your log to qualify the summit for you…you had a brilliant pileup on 40m😁. A big ‘well done’ to Sue who has been with you on so many of those summits. It was also good to get Derek 2E0MIX in my log.

73 & 88 to Sue.

Welcome to the all G/GW activator club Gerald, and well-deserved congratulations. Especially good to see that you got your four contacts and the point from Swinside G/LD-057 despite the severe limitations of your wkg cndx up there!


Mine are something like:

Best: Cadair Berwyn GW/NW-012
Worst: Crowborough G/SE-007
Hardest: Tryfan GW/NW-006 or Upper Park GW/MW-032 depending on context!
Easiest: The Cloud G/SP-015 (as it’s the quickest to access from the home QTH). The several drive-ons are physically easier, but may require a long drive, a ferry crossing, or not have the nicest environment or decent take-off. So overall The Cloud is the easiest one for me.

I look forward to you joining us in the all G/GW/GD/GI/GJ/GU Club in due course! Sadly don’t envisage being able to add GM to that. I don’t think I have enough life left - and that might be further curtailed if I attempted certain SOTA summits up there :wink:


Congratulations! I hope you take some time to savour your achievement, before tackling the next association. :smiley:

Well done Gerald.
It was great to meet up with you, Sue and Derek in Keswick on Wednesday.
I tried to make your log for High Rigg on Thursday but failed. I enjoyed listening to so many people I now call friends in your pile up anyway.
