A great morning for some sky fishing!
So I heard there was going to be a few SOTA activators on 27 Saturday morning especially from GW/……￼￼ so booked myself off and cleared it with the family boss .
My first SOTA of the year and hope to do more later in the year. I am blessed to have a G/WB-009 10min drive away to car park.
I finished work and went up the Malvern hills. A nice steady walk, taking in the views and watching the sun start to make an appearance￼￼.
I tried this time to go light with the kit - Yaesu 857 , 40m.20m linked dipole with a new carbon 6 pole and a flowerpot for 2m.
All set up, just away off the main track I started at 06:00 utc on 40m and got 5 in the log within 30mins so happy with that and everything else will be a bonus.
Over the next few hours, I worked 24 in the log on 40m,20m,2m and even 70cm! with 6 of those S2S.
A thanks to all the chases￼ a big thanks to all the S2S in Wales, Croatia, Portugal.
