We left Suffolk at 6am and got to Settle a bit after 10am.
Then we drove up Kingsdale and walked up Whernside NP-004 from the west. There were quite a lot of people on the summit even though it was cold cloudy and windy. When I set up the beam I found it had lost the screw that connects the coax to the element so I only used the whip on the FT-290.
I made eight contacts all on FM.
Great Coum NP-011:
We started on a gravel path which suddenly disappeared into a very muddy path/bog which we followed until we were below the summit and then we followed the wall up to the top.
I called for a while before I got any contacts then I worked three stations and finally worked GW0DSP by standing on the wall.
We got back to the car just as it got dark.
On Sunday we were going to do Dodd Fell NP-016 but when we got to the car park there was low cloud and snow so we went home early instead.
