GW/NW-073 Mynnyd-Rhyd-Ddu 15th November 2009
Just a quick report:
I used this easy 1 pointer just to give my less sore heal a small test before a couple of 2 pointers next week.
Used Richards park spot finding room for one car just off the side of the track,heading up PROW path to fence and then not sure if PROW or not but a very wide quarry road with very large vehicles on it proceeded to top and spotted Trig just beyond wall and fence.
I Was going to shelter in large rocks formation but decided to go closer to trig and hide from rain and wind behind the wall.
Set up and rain had gone for the moment, breaks in the cloud allowing Elaine to get a couple of photos in the camera. (See Flicker) calling for wht seems like forever (20 mins) before G0TRB finally come back for 1st in log. Qrz calling again for about 5 mins before Geoff 2W0BTR/P asking if frequency was clear got him in log with Nice S2S while he was on MW-017. Richard G4ERP gave me 4th before I let Geoff have 320 while I went to see if FM 2M would be any better. no calls back after 10 mins so set up 6m dipole and The Magic Band was not doing its stuff either today.
Did hear My Old Mate G4USW but could not swap reports as he couldn’t hear me Sorry Bill!!
Overall Very easy ascent to top,albeit boggy from all the wet stuff we had here for a few weeks.
Thanks for those to contacted me up there just 4 in the log but at least I got an S2S !!!
