This coming week 14th September I intend paying a visit to Islay, The Queen of the Hebrides ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Islay ) for a few days.
I plan to activate some of the 7 summits on the island but not sure if I will manage them all. I am still recovering from a back injury last September but I am confident enough to venture out on strange territory. I have been to Islay a few times but always working and apart from driving an 18 tonne truck round the island sightseeing that is as far as I have ventured.
The weather isn’t looking the best for next week (should have taken this week off ) but I am hoping for a few breaks in the weather. The main reason for the break is, well to have a break and explore the many sights to see on this wonderful island. I will be taking the radio gear with me and do hope to play SOTA and maybe even a few trigs as well. Not that I bother about collecting trigs myself I just thought a few would like the chance to chase one or two.
I don’t have an itinerary as such but will post alerts for summits as I know when I will be able to do them at least a couple hours in advance. Best I can do about keeping you informed.
Bands will be probably 40m SSb, 20m SSB and 2m. I will have other band capabilities with me but usually only use those three.
Hope to hear some of you sometime through the week. Have to be home Friday midday so only a couple of days.
