As it happens, I’m off there on Wednesday for two weeks. Obviously won’t be on a valid summit, but amongst other things - bands permitting - will be trying some WWFF. (No WAB Squares out there either).
Please look for our party, we’ll be, in callsign order:
With our present facilities a few hours work will identify all the candidate summits on the island, it can be a much longer job to assign names to the summits thus discovered if good maps are difficult to find. The real problem, as with so many other candidate countries, is finding someone with local knowledge to take on the role of AM. Given a resolution of the political situation, and a suitable AM coming forward, an Association could be up and running in a few months.
It certainly is. The highest summit is Mount Olympus at 1952 metres.
Olympus certainly is the high point Brian, we were in Cyprus in the early '60s and I worked on the RAF Radio Relay system (HM300) and spent some time up there as NCO IC the relay station. also had many call outs usually at 2 am while living in Limassol down on the coast. Only one poor road in those days, lots of fun and the population was in turmoil a lot of the time. All changed now I am told with good roads and enough rock has been put on the very close neighbouring top so tourists can get to the highest point. The Radar site is still there. RR only had a small tower in the old days and even I with vertigo could climb it and be the highest man in Cyprus.
