Just back from a trip to the western Cotswolds and the activations of Bredon & Cleeve Hill. I think the sky was definitely broken today with only 60/40M SSB working first thing this morning and only 40M CW around lunchtime. In the case of Cleeve Hill I thought at on stage that I would have a failed activation with no QSO’s for the first 30 minutes. No S2S’s today but a thanks to Ken GM0AXY and Michael DJ5AV who managed to make it on both hills. On the second hill worked Ken in CW which I think is a first for us. Full report available here
Saw this on a gate on the path up Bredon Hill - given the state of the propagation today - ‘it was good but it wasn’t Carling’ (other Lagers are available).
