On Tuesday 3rd May I hope to on the island of Scarp off the South West of Harris in the Outer Hebrides. This is a currently unactivated SOTA summit on a reasonably rarely activated island. Scarp has not been permanent;y inhabited since 1971 and now has a few holiday homes inhabited during the better weather.
For those who want to put ticks into boxes, Scarp and its summit Sron Romul have the following references.
I should have about 6 hrs on the island and allowing sufficient time to walk from the landing point and setup and to get back means I hope to have a 3hr operating window. I plan to primarily operate on 40m/60m bands initially for UK/EU SOTA/WAB chasers. Depending on how things run 30m is a strong possibility. Scarp is about 450miles from Birmingham so slightly longer propagation on 40m would be desirable for once. If 40m is running short I may try 20m to give some more SSB chances.
There is an alert in place. Scarp is ringed in red on the map below.
