Mountain Goat, First activation and mountain Goat Activation

Tom M1EYP asked on another Discussion:

I cannot achieve Mountain Goat status, but I am always pleased to see more MG’s being awarded. What I can say is my First ever SOTA Activity was on a Summit that is no longer a Marilyn and has gone over to the “Dark Side”

As Tom is asking list you first summit and MG Summit on here??

Cheers Tony

My first activation was my local summit Rombalds Moor G/NP-028 but I only got one QSO (same on my second summit of Scafell Pike G/LD-001). I first got points on Snowdon GW/NW-001.

As for MG, I’ll let you know in about 5 years’ time if this thread is still going.

Hi Tony @G1JPV,

My first SOTA activation was on a very local summit to me ‘Garreg Hir’ GW/MW-017. All being well, I plan to hit my MG status this Saturday on another local hill called ‘Y Golfa’ GW/NW-061. I will let you know if I qualify or not :slight_smile:

Oh, the Golf course? I want to activate Moel y Golfa, strange how it is only on the other side of Welshpool but is in Mid Wales!

Yes, the golf course. Moel Y Golfa is just on the other side of Welshpool. Nice 1 pointer, short but steep!
