Another morning trot up The Cloud G/SP-015 on Monday 21st December 2015. 10m was a little more lively. Noy much, bit something at least. 6 QSOs on 10m CW (4X, EA, G, RA, UR) and 1 on 10m SSB (UR).
As my antenna was the custom-built 10m/6m GP vertical with trap, from SOTAbeams, I had a little listen on 6m, but there was nothing there. The unexpected but highly convenient bonus with this antenna is that it works really well on 2m. So without any adjustment or swapping of antennas or feeders, I went straight onto VHF and added 9 stations on 2m FM.
I’m going to see if I can keep up with an activation per day throughout the festive holiday period. Doing so in the past has been surprisingly effective at aiding weight loss and improving fitness - ie way faster than one would have thought. As I’m no longer in a work situation where it is easy and convenient to fit an activation into work days as a matter of course, it needs a more determined effort and I must take opportunities in holiday periods like this.
So hopefully another round tomorrow morning.
