G/dc-004

Might be idea to double check prior going to a Sota to activate it

Other day M0NRD/p popped up on the WAB net and was doing SW95 TP etc.
Then mentions he’s at a Sota, thought ooh cool
G/DC-004 OH how do we inform him its no longer valid as the DC-008 next door to DC-004 has taken over.

But not total loss good to get the Square and the Trip point from the old hill, at DC-004 no longer valid

So go into data base make sure things not changed as they do sometimes
Wonder if G/DC004 now qualify’s for Humps

No Karl. The ground between Hensbarrow Beacon (ex DC-004) and Hensbarrow Downs DC-008 is only just a little lower than the beacon, probably around 5m or so. The photo below shows the situation with the beacon in front of the downs.
