Contemplating a Bank Holiday Monday activation at the bottom end of the SP zone (Shing Tor perhaps?), and wanted to ask any local folk if the summits are unusually busy on Bank Holidays?
I know most summits tend to attract more people on Bank holidays, but any info would be welcomed.
I’d like to include HF in an activation, but appreciate it’s not easy with a summit full of day trippers there’s always 2m SSB I suppose, the guying for that pole is considerably more compact than the HF dipole!
Thanks for the info, much appreciated. Looks like the usual Bank holiday wx might put a stop to an activation though, we had thunder & lightning for most of the day yesterday, and I don’t want to be sat on a hill with a ‘lightning attractor ‘ connected to my radio!
Will be scanning the forecasts this morning, so we’ll see.
Yes, I expect summits will be busy, but there’s plenty of space within the AZs on SP-004, SP-013 and SP-015. You don’t have to set up right at the summit, and it would be both wise and considerate NOT to do so today I imagine.
