G/LD Holiday 2023

Natalie and I had a week in G/LD a couple of weeks back. We always seem to do well for WX and this one was no different. Amongst other things we activated a couple of SOTA…

G/LD-041 Binsey

Nice little Summit close to where we were staying in Cockermouth. I tried HF but there was a contest on so I just did 2m FM. Very busy on the summit for this one.

G/LD-035 Great Mell Fell

This one was a new one for us and a really nice walk. Only saw one other person all day.

G/LD-037 Little Mell Fell

A short sharp walk to the Summit. We could have done this after G/LD-035 the previous day but one of our dogs is 13 years old with a heart defect so didn’t want to push it.

Other days out not SOTA related…

Buttermere Lake

Bassenthwaite Lake

Another highlight was a visit from Bill M0DXT who didn’t live too far from where we were staying. We have had several QSO’s with Bill on our various portable activations and it was nice to put a face to a call sign. Activation Videos on YouTube.
