GW/MW-004 Today 2/3/19

Hi all
Had a good morning on Pen y Garn with my XYL Michelle, she got s little cold so we didn’t stay too long. I made a mistake and not checked my gear before hand correctly and forgot my bnc to pl259 adaptor for my end fed 20/30m. I ended up using my 2M cable from my home brew yagi, it has pl259 one one end and crocodile clips on the other so I clipped them into the bnc. It worked with luck and managed to get 3 contacts on 20m ssb. I had already qualified the summit on 2M fm.
GW4VPX Allan was my fourth contact so well done Allan helping me qualify the summit.

Hi Paul

Thanks for the contact this morning and glad to be of assistance, however, if it wasn’t for Don GW0PLP’s spot I think I would have missed you. Can you send me an e-mail as I have a plan for MW-007 and MW-008 next weekend if the wx is favourable.

Compliments to the photographer for the pics above and for braving the elements with you :grinning:
