Thanks to all with whom I had QSOs last week whilst up in the NP area with my family and friends.
It was a great week and a very beautiful area - I’ve been in the general area before, but doing the karrimor mountain marathon, where I only really see the 2m in front of my feet as I struggle to keep up with my brother. It was a nice change having all those stone walls as a wind break whilst activating some of the summits. I managed to squeeze in Ingleborough, Whernside, Pen y Ghent, Dodd Fell, Great Shunner, and Wild Boar Fell around family activities and walks in the end - mainly by doing some running to catch up with the others, which probably tested the ruggedness of the FT 817 somewhat.
It was great to have so many chasers actively listening during the midweek - thanks!
Apologies to Mike GW0DSP for missing him on Wild Boar Fell -I’d taken down my main mast and beam and was having a last ditch attempt to qualify the summit on my rucsac mounted J pole from the other end of the summit plateau before descending - which I managed thanks to three quick QSOs on the whip.
73s and thanks again
