Today I activated Slieve Donard GI/MM-001 on 30m CW.
As soon as as I started to transmit I was pounced upon by a pride of very hungry chasers. No big problem, I was not going anywhere and an hour later there were no hungry Chasers remaining. Mission accomplished, off to 60m.
I understand that in the heat of the chase it is difficult, but Please Please Please, send your callsign only once, not 3 times.
Old cloth ears and an ageing FT857 are doing their best! Please call just once and be a little patient. In the afternoon on GI/MM-002 it was all “sweetness and light”, so it can be done.
