Today I visited WIN GREEN G/SC-008 for a short activation .
I added a microphone to my rucksack in the hope that I might bag an S2S on 40m SSB as I saw that other UK activators were going to be out .
However on arrival on site I found that my linked dipole ,left in the rucksack from my last outing , was for WARC bands 10mhz/18mhz/24mhz.
A few QSO’s were made on 10mhz and then a few more on 18mhz CW but then I was asked for my WAB square !
Well I normally write the WAB square and QTH locator on my log sheet before I leave home and don’t get asked ! Murphy’s law working well again.
No worries I will email it out when I get home.
Just taking down email address when a frisky passing dog gets caught up in my aerial lead , never mind I think I have copied it okay . Wrong ! and the email address on QRZ.com does not work either.
If anyone reading this wants to find a WAB square reference for any UK SOTA summit you just have to find the Grid Reference on the SOTA summit details page and take the two letters and the first and fourth digit of the 6 figure grid reference.
e.g. WIN GREEN G/SC-008 is Grid Reference ST 925206 , so the WAB square becomes ST 92.
