After a telephone conversation with Ron GW4EVX, Ron explained that he was looking for an alternative contest site to his usual spot on Halkyn Mountain and asked if I could show him around the possible sites around Hope Mountain. We agreed a day and time and thought it would be a good idea to follow the contest site tour with a joint activation OF GW/NW-062.
Although Ron and I live only 3 or 4 miles apart as the RF flies we had never met, not only that, Ron is only approx 7 miles from Hope Mountain, but to date it remained unactivated by Ron. A plan was hatched and today’s activation was planned. We had a superb day out up there with plenty of stations logged by the pair of us.
I won’t go into detail now, because I will do a full report and add some interesting photos of Ron’s military tranceivers in the next Summits News.
Many thanks to all who called us and to all of you for the many spots.
Mike GW0DSP & Ron GW4EVX
