I have been asked by a scout group to open the gate for access to Hameldon hill on Monday, result is i will be joining them for the lighting of the beacon. Although not a sota summit i have decided to take some radio gear.
From talking to their leader there will another group on Pendle sp/005 and waddington fell (possibly easington sp-012) I wonder if there is anyone else up and about on the fells. The beacons will be lit around 2200 for about an hour.
It would be good for a link up, maybe exchange greetings with some of the scouts etc.
Will be on site 2100 not sure when qrv, also there may be massive amounts or qrm from the masts up there, (but not my radar hi).
I will be in company with 2E0XJP (2Q0xjp)
Catch you up there unless changed by the scouts etc
p.s. there are hundreds of these beacons according to the website jubileebeacons etc.
