We (M6BWA and M0JLA) aim to visit the local summits once a year but this year we have activated Waun Fach GW/SW-002 on three occasions. On our first visit on 20 January in icy conditions we qualified on 2m fm but I only made 1 contact on 70cm so I hoped to return when the conditions were a bit warmer. We were back on 25 March and gained a handful of s2s on the VX-7 as we reached the summit but I didn’t try 70cm as we swiftly descended to the reservoir and continued with a long walk. On 13 August we finally had a chance to get some exercise and also activate the hill on 70cm (M6BWA) and see what was happening on HF (M0JLA). Both of us were successful in the sunshine and I expected my 12 70cm contacts to increase my 70cm score by 8 points… but it didn’t happen! I was also uploading 4 single point local activations which were ‘first time visits’ for this year and those 4 points got added to both my 2m and 70cm totals but what happened to those vital 8 70cm points. Woz I robbed, have I missed something or have I found a database hiccup?? I am sure that others will have been in the same position before (possibly on different bands) but may not have noticed that they weren’t credited for the ‘new’ part of the activation. It just happened that I had made a note of my points on the two bands before uploading these recent results so the error was spotted.
Sorry to add to the workload - but with the bank holiday weather we have outside (pouring rain and some thunder) rushing out and activating doesn’t seem to be terribly enticing. Thanks for your help in solving this (or showing me the error of my ways…?)
