I am a bit new to QSL cards. I got an email from the RSGB asking me to send them some SAEs. Not realising different people, deal with different call signs, I was a bit surprised that I only got cards for my old call sign. This has now been sorted. So apologies if you have sent me one, and not got one back. I am on it!
I will use the RSGB for EU/World, but happy to go direct in the UK. Just DM me.
I think Tom @M1EYP on G/SP-015 would qualify for that. Although it has been said that the erosion caused by his regular visits has started to take hight off the summit. I think it will need to be re-evaluated soon. It may have to be demoted.
Yeah HEMA was originally set up by Mike @G4BLH who has been a friend in SOTA for many years. I did many of the early HEMA activations - Shutlingsloe, Mow Cop, The Roaches etc. But when the current manager took over the scheme he blocked me from the Facebook group and deleted all my activator and chaser logs, without giving a reason - just for the “crime” of being SOTA MT I think. Jimmy M0HGY was also blocked and banned for nothing more awful than simply being my son! It would be nice to have access back to that programme as there’s plenty around here to explore - plus it would be a reason to revisit Raw Head G/SP-016 - a SOTA favourite of yesteryear, but demoted from Marilyn to Submarilyn status on a RHB survey.
Don’t worry about The Cloud though - I know exactly where on that ascent path the AZ begins, and there’s far more earth and rock above it than even I could trample down in my remaining lifetime!
