After six week in sunnier climes, I finally got back to my local summit Shining Tor. Conditions were great, blue skies, snow and hardly any wind. Band conditions were nothing spectacular but OK. I had a couple of pileups…thanks to everyone for their patience. I always give priority to S2Ss.
Thanks to everyone that worked me. I ended up with the following S2Ss
Whilst there were the usual jokes about me being on Shining Tor (Thanks Rob)! What did make me smile was whilst walking down I met Neil (G0WPO/P) and Tom (M1EYP/P) walking up, about 15 minutes apart. I am thinking we need some form of queuing system
This is what you need.

That’s an impressive number of S2S!
That is an amazing S2S list, far exceeding anything I have achieved.
Thanks for the QSO.
Paul MM7FEE/P was doing a joint activation of Black hill GM/SS-167 with me today but we didn’t get as many s2s before succumbing to the bitterly cold wind.
I didn’t check the alerts. i didn’t even check the spots. I always enjoy a snowy walk up G/SP-004 and this afternoon’s Macclesfield away game at Newcastle was called off due to a frozen pitch. So it was a nice surprise to bump into Martin @2E0BIA (well not a massive surprise, but you know…), and meet Julie for the first time.
It was also good to catch Neil @G0WPO at the summit, and even better to see that he was working on 20m, with intentions to move onto 10m and 2m! (As I only had 15m with me and not back-up!)
Some nice DX with Argentina, USA, Canada and Canaries in the log. The US caller was none other than Fred @KT5X in New Mexico. As I started packing up, I noticed that Neil was doing the same - so we agreed to walk down together and have a natter - most enjoyable.
