…one of the greatest lyrics in rock ‘n’ roll history.
Anyway, Jimmy and I are off down to London, not to dig up paving stones but to join the annual British DX Club (http://www.bdxc.org.uk) get-together, beer, chat, curry in Twickenham. Meeting at the Barmy Arms at 4pm if anyone wants to pop in. This event usually also includes a mobile/portable FM broadcast band DXing session in Richmond Park (one of the highest points in Greater London) on the Sunday morning.
However, we won’t be joining that, choosing instead to complete the G/CE region. We will have done CE-001, CE-002 & CE-003 on the way down on the Saturday, with CE-004 & CE-005 to be activated on the Sunday. Joint activations of any are welcome; alert times are very approximate.
I have already activated all these, and Jimmy has walked up them all with me, but not since he got his licence, so he needs these for his Uniques. I understand that some keen chasers need some of these for their Uniques, and I have already started taking bookings to point in certain directions at certain times! Does anyone else need any of these summits? Let me know on here and I will make a point of looking for you, even unleashing the 5 watts on 2m SSB H-pol if necessary!
Our journey progress may be monitored via repeaters. We will be initially on GB3VT 145.725MHz, and then other local repeaters or S20 as appropriate. Jimmy will be self-spotting to the tune of “QRV in 20 minutes” if all goes to plan. Hopefully we will have the whole region completed inside 45 hours.
