Thanks for the information, Tom. 73 de Paul.
Shall we organise a “muster” at the SOTA stand for a social meet-up and group photo opportunity at, say, 11.30am? SOTA T-shirts, fleeces, sweatshirts and hats/caps encouraged for photographic purposes (and if you’re going to be doing a stint on the stand).
I’ve just booked Saturday night accommodation (and not at Norbreck ). Anyway I’m looking forward to meeting up with lots of people again.
You coming south to help us celebrate St George’s Day Andy?
I wondered why 23rd April was resonating. You’d think after so many years in the UK I’d remember immediately.
I’m planning on being there. If only to make sure the fountain still has its weirdly green water.
I’ll be there!
I’ll be there
I was hoping to be there this year, but my wife and I had covid leading up to Easter, and so postponed the family gathering until this weekend. Happily it didn’t interfere with the eating of chocolate
Reminder: if you’re going to Norbreck today, please join us at the SOTA stand at 11.30am for a large group photo!
Best Wishes Tom and all the SOTA people there. I hope that you have a great day. 73, Paul.

Preparing to see some familiar and unfamiliar faces when the group shots are uploaded to the reflector Tom.
I heard G4YSS on Ingleborough G/NP-005 this morning chatting to a few stations on 2m FM. I didn’t make a chaser QSO unfortunately… John must have detoured up the hill on his way to the show.
Have a good one,
Unfortunately, the situation didn’t lend itself to an organised group photo at the nominated time. I made the decision at the time to instead take a few photos from different angles. I’m sure John @G4YSS will add some more in due course. Great to see everyone today!
Lovely to meet up today. Also glad I almost looked in the right direction for the photo
Lot of “old goats” in those photos… and some younger ones, plus some sloths too…
Really pleased to see some old friends and meet some new people too.
Thanks for photos Tom.
Rare to get a photo of SOTA’s Founders without a beer. Probably one of the better photos of us.
The secret of a good photo is to capture the subjects before they’ve been on the sauce - and, of course, enlist a top notch photographer.
Great to meet some fellow SOTA activators and chasers today at Norbreck - apologies I didn’t get a chance to speak with everyone, time was scarce. Will deffo attend next year and spend the full day there the SOTA stand was looking good and very busy at all times - that certainly talks for itself! I hope everyone had a great time!
It was great to meet everyone today. It was also great to find that Andy @MM0FMF is much less grumpy in person!
