A great day to be in the Mourne Mountains in Co Down, great weather, great views and some QSOs at the top!!
The assent took one and three-quarter hours and the descent one and a half hours, a round trip of about 4.9 miles according to the iPhone app, if you can believe them.
The summit was quickly activated with five QSOs in FM mode, after which I tried SSB, although with zero sunspots over the last two days I was not hopeful, however a good contact was made on 20m to Slovenia on just 5 watts using the FT-817ND
The photographs are by Rennie Gribbin, a gifted photographer, I told him he takes better photographs than my iPhone
