I intend to be at the rally.

I’ll be bringing the world famous Mountain Goat rig built on the summit of Whernside earlier this year. :laughing:

There’s also a possibility of the world debut of the Hilltop 20 SOTA rig.

Look forward to meeting friends old and new.

73, Colin


We should be there early on , Glad the poles are sorted, will bring a couple of clamps and lots of tape, Audrey is busy at the baking, I am not allowed in 'cos I keep pinching little sausage rolls.
Looking forward to seeing everyone
Rob and Audrey


I’m intending to be there. I made the trip last year for the first time, and really enjoyed it.

I’ve even used some of the bits and pieces that I bought there :wink:


It will be great to see everbody tomorrow. As last year I’m staying over tonight, it makes travel so much easier.
Currently sat on the front in Sunny Blackpool :slight_smile:

Greetings to those all gathering.
Great to contact a few on 80m this morning from G/DC-003 while out portable and pick up a nice double S2S with ester and Ian on G/SP-017 and couple contacts to those on SD-35 Dave and Paul.

Battery dropped below a certain voltage and rig cut out time to pack up and go home


I’m in the sunny Lake District, looking forward to catching up tomorrow!

Really looking forward to this one :slight_smile:

Greetings from a mild and overcast Benidorm. I had a wander round with some of the guys in the band last night and the place reminded us very much of Blackpool. But not in a good way.

Thanks to Rob, Audrey, Simon, Mark, Andy, Colin and anyone else helping to promote SOTA today. Sorry to miss the event, but this was just too big a gig to turn down!

Have a great day everyone.
