Just done a smash and grab of the newest Welsh one, Weather as usual turned “Nasty” while up there.
couple of things:
1st) Someone kindly left us some coax up there stored in the Summit Cairn, Grey coax one end bare and the other end has a PL259 plug on it. (approx 4 metres) I have left it there as I didnt need it but may come in handy for next activator! Hi Hi
and 2) just a quick thanks to all who contacted me before the “Orrible weather” came in and not only stopped the activation but also our circular walk. We parked in Marian Cwm and walked on the Offas Dyke path for a bit. but coming back we just went straight back to car as fast as possible in torrential rain and gusty winds!
13 contacts all on 2m, with 11 on ssb and 2 on FM.
