G6ODU - a new activator!

Congratulations Bob on your successful activation of GW/NW-076 Mynydd y Cwm this evening. Hopefully the first of many!

It was a great way to end a day at the Llandudno rally after meeting up with many SOTA friends, some for the first time.

Well done - I remember how hard it was for us to make that first CQ SOTA call (as I’m sure will Tom and Jimmy)!

Well done indeed Bob, I could tell you were not quite used to being on the activator side of a QSO. Hi!

Congratulations Bob on activating your first ever SOTA summit.

Well done on the activation Bob. I hope this doesn’t mean that you will forsake the great community of chasers, of which you are a Grade A member! :slight_smile:

73, Gerald G4OIG

In reply to G4OIG:
My thoughts exactly.
Well done, Bob, but I hope we shall still find you chasing the small Welsh summits.
73, Rod

Hi Bob welcome to the ranks of the Lunatic Fringe :slight_smile:

Always good to work you, look forward to some S2S’s soon

Many Thanks for all postings,It was a great day & night(it got dark very early),slightly wet,but, we did miss the heavy downpour, which came as we drove away. Thanks for spots Mark, at that time of the day most normal folk are doing other things. Gerald & Rod:- as long as I have a radio and I hear SOTA I shall chase,even more now that I have experienced the other side of SOTA. Paul:- at my age being called a lunatic is standard,eg.bought big m/bike FJR 1300/Yamaha(:<{).. Cheers Jimmy sorry I couldnt put you in the log along with many of the chaser clan.
Finaly, Karen & Neil , Without whos help,encoragement I probably would not have been brave enough to attempt an activation. 73s SAFE DESCENT`S

Congrat’s on your first activation Bob…But don’t get too comfy in those slippers tho’, as I’m sure that Karen will not let you rest on your laurels!

Great to se that ‘activators grin’ on your face as the contacts came in!!!

In reply to G6ODU:
Well done with your first activation Bob, sorry I didn’t get you in my Log but nothing heard here:(

You may be a bit like me, a chaser that sometimes goes up hills to do some chasing and activates a summit while there?

Well done Bob. It was really nice to have a chat at the rally. Would have loved to worked you on your first activation, maybe next time. Thanks for your call on GW/NW-070.

Hi Bob
Just back from LD with Jill and the boys. Really sorry I missed your activation - I would have loved to add you to my chaser tally, which has just scraped over the 1000 mark!!
Next time…
