Thanks for everyone’s help with spots today(cheers John gw4bve and Michael F6GEO). I have been using a 40m whip antenna (cw) to see what sort of response I would get. Plan is to use one on Snowdon next year.
Bit of a Michael Fish weather report today, it looked ok on the BBC weather maps, but rained all the way there and strong winds on the peaks. A mountain bike would have made a quick activation from Cyrn Y Brain most of the route is concrete path. A good pair of summits to activate at this time of year, with ten points for little effort. Hardest part was getting the contacts with rubbish antenna I wont go down that route again. I have put off getting a sota beam for 2m because I hate using the mike, but if others are going to start using cw I will put one on my xmas list.
