Congratulation Ian on achieving MG.


Well done Ian great achievement

Well done Ian!!
Welcome in the herd

Congratulations Ian on getting those last vital points from the Nant y Moch cluster. You certainly work for the points round there and you won’t have had too much difficulty in social distancing on the summits. I look forward to working you as I’m sure you (and Eleri) are not going to rest now but will continue to enjoy you activations - probably more so now the pressure is off! 73

Well done Ian.

Thank you very much everyone for all the kind words on here and all the QSOs over the years that have made this amazing journey so enjoyable.

Here’s to the next 1000 points!

Cheers and 73.



Congrats, Ian,
We’ve only made QSO twice so far,when you chased me on 15 and 17m bands last September 15th, but I’ll be looking forwards to making many more QSOs with you in the near future.


Congrats on the MG award, i dont believe we’ve worked yet but heres to a contact with you soon.

Ian @GW8OGI and/or Eleri @MW3NYR (sorry, can’t recall your 2W callsign!) - can you email me a photo - either from the MG activation - or other SOTA activation? Looking to compile the next SOTA press release ASAP. Cheers!
