Just a quick report on todays activation of the Stiperstones in Shropshire G/WB-003.
Thanfully to a Landrover, I got there OK but the lane up from Bridges was extremely trecherous in places due to ice and a covering of snow too.
Very lonely this part of the world. I was the first car up there this morning. Great. Had been reading about this area in times gone by and I can see why it was rife with witches, black masses, etc.
Walk waas good despite a very strong and freezing wind - so sheltered next to the roacks under the Trig Point. How they managed to get it up there?
As the rocks were shielding me, I was pleased to work :-
G4JZF (Thanks for the spot), G6ODU, M0COP, G3XQE, G4OBK, 2E0NHM, M0JLA, G4XUV and M0IBC. All worked on 2m ssb until a battery problem (lack of volts) caused me to close down. Thanks to all stations worked - sorry if I missed anyone, but my working conditions not the best this morning.
Until the next one,
