Hello to all. I am planning to activate a few summits in Ireland toward the first week of September.
I would appreciate any advice on the following:
What to wear (Does it rain as much as I have heard and how cold?)
Any risk of thunderstorms this time of year on the peaks?
Should I plan on most using a SOTA pole for most all peaks? (We have lots of trees in GA, probably not so much in Ireland.)
What is the best way to spot in Ireland? (Is internet sketchy, I also have APRS)
I will be doing mostly SSB Voice HF, but will also have VHF/UHF capability
The peaks I have been considering are:
Mount Leinster EI/IE-004
Torc Mountain EI/IS-050
Brandon Mountain EI/IS-003
Brandon Peak EI/IS-007
Any tips, pointers are greatly appreciated.
Cant wait to visit this lovely place.
