Just like to apologise to anybody left wanting a contact with me today on 40m. Sadly ten minutes into my pile-up I was run off my frequency by a French contest station deciding he had more claim to it than I did Thanks to those with more power than I who tried in vain to get him to QSY. With Gerald having had his activation completed for him by his antenna breaking, and with rain rapidly approaching, I didn’t feel there was time to try and establish myself on a new frequency so reluctantly pulled the plug.
It was a disappointing end to what had been a brilliant activation - having driven through high winds and torrential rain in the central belt and bypassing our planned target of Broad Law on account of it being a seemingly suicidal enterprise and us wanting to be around to do more hills tomorrow, we found North Berwick Law bathed in sunshine and surprisingly balmy.
Thanks to those who did make it and hope to catch you again tomorrow
