Nipped up to Long Mynd G/WB-005 this morning hoping to find a bit of VHF tropo. Decided to use the white stick which has performed brilliantly over the past two weeks.
Not too much DX about though. Managed to find Don G0RQL in Devon, another station near Carlisle whose call escapes me and a rather surprised M6EPW and M0XSD up in Frizington West Cumbria who I don’t think has ever heard the Welsh Borders, let alone worked them on FM. This was the story with about four other stations.
However, after two 2m activations, I’m still not convinced about the take-off from this summit, which I would describe as at best, mediocre. I’d be interested if anyone else has any views on this one.
The plan was to knock off 200 contacts today, however, on submitting my log, it seems I failed, falling four short with 196. Must learn to count
Finished up with 15 S2S including a Wainwright and a HuMP.
Done the 20Ah SLAB and probably half of the 10Ah SLAB
Thanks to all the chasers for their patience. Thanks also for keeping me spotted.
Nice days radio.
