At about 15:20 this afternoon I realised there was just about enough time for me to get to Botley Hill before sunset if I was lucky. I’ve been wanting to try a SOTA activation for a while and this seemed like a decent opportunity.
Appearances can be deceptive however - it was muddy, steep and really cold! I got the four contacts but couldn’t feel my fingers towards the end! Not really surprising considering I got there slightly after sunset though!
I think next time I’ll plan a bit more to avoid freezing myself after sunset! As a first spontaneous attempt though, not bad!
