Just like to say sorry to anybody looking for me on 40m from Mendick Hill, GM/SS-195 yesterday. 40m was a complete zoo, tried several frequencies only to find by the end of my CQ there was a huge contest station calling away there and although I eventually found a “reasonably” clear frequency around 7.186 I couldn’t self spot and when nobody found me after 20 minutes calling I guessed my 4W just wasn’t making it
Did find Chris, GM3WOJ up near Inverness calling CQ and managed a difficult contact with him so the band wasn’t a total loss.
On the plus side did qualify the hill on 80m
Thanks to all on 60m and 80m that made the activation a success nevertheless!
