As a SOTA newby, can I ask another question.
What do people use to log on the hill. So far, my few activations (on lowly single point hills) have had coincided with dry weather. Even little Bredon Hill on Friday, which was under a good foot of snow, was dry to operate. However today on Sugar Loaf, I was in a blizzard. The radio was fine, tucked in a bag, and I was fine wrapped in many layers, but of course I struggled to log, especially when I came to turn over the page and found it had turned to tissue paper. What do you all do?
Thanks to everybody I worked today, some of you had to work quite hard to hear me. I had tried to get out of the wind on the lee of the summit. I had simply stuck the mast into a snowdrift but this did mean the antenna was lower than usual. It really is appreciated that there are chasers out there.
