Saturday rolled in after a busy start to the week designing the rather large PCB for my third year project, I needed a break away from a computer screen. I am still keen on ganging multiple summits up on the weekend to stretch my legs, although now unique summits in North Wales are fairly limited. Having activated Moelfre before I knew that I was in for a steep climb. From the bottom she looks fairly tame, however viewed from Y Llethr the true extent of the climb can be appreciated. I used a similar parking spot to Gerald MW0WML and took the North flank up to the summit of Moelfre GW/NW-041.
Looking out to Ireland clearly visible on the next summit
I wish I had brought up the 21 MHz vertical again, it would have been good. Weight saving with larger activation’s is a sensible thing to do. With the current configuration I use separate coax lines for the dipole and the vertical, carrying both adds more weight. 40m provided more than enough contacts to fill a page, time was limited so another band was not considered. To get to Y llethr you descend down the back of Moelfre into a space where you will not see nor hear another human being - bliss !
Approach up the side of Y Llethr the walk was easily done with beautiful weather and a steady incline.
At the summit of Y Llethr GW/NW-017. Moelfre in the distance having just activated. Still present on the summit around 1 inch of snow just enough to numb the…
Nearly ready to start, if only I could get a spot out from the middle of nowhere reliably !
Just starting to loose the sun, a dark walk back to the car - doesn’t phase me much now.
Brilliant pair of summits. Put it on your to-do list. Y Llethr deserves a few more activations this year.
