In reply to MW6AQU:
Shame you had pants WX for your visit. It was lovely till you came! Actually it had been snowing and dreiky for a few days.
Meall nam Maigheach CS-082 is really in the middle of nowhere for 2m activation so I’m glad you qualified it. It’s a trivial wee yomp from the car park at the cairn and there’s only one bit that’s a bit yeuchy and is soon crossed. The views though, are really good but I guess you didn’t see much at all. Apart from list ticking, the only reason to go up it is for the views of the big boys all around. I did it on a lovely warm day with a gentle breeze but with no shelter it must be “fun” in the wind and dreik.
Meall nan subh GM/CS-076 suffers again from positional difficulties. By the time you driven all the way down Glen Lyon or Glen Lochay, driven up what’s left of the water board road and found there’s nowhere to park, driven down then walked up, you may as well have done Beinn Heasgarnich or some other Munro or such rather than faff about with Meall nan subh for 4 points. Unless, you’ve done all the Munros and want to bag Corbetts etc. Still qualifying on 2m again is not too easy, you’re quite well screened.
summit to summit contacts on the same day with Robin GM7PKT/P
Some of the requirements for a truly succesful activation, S2S with Robin, QSO with Ken GM0AXY&Christine GM4YMM, QSO with Rich N4EX.
with particular help from Jack GM4COX
No half measures or giving up with Jack. You’ll know to bring extra batteries if you get in a QSO with him next time!
Hopefully we can have an S2S next time your up here, or even meet up. But next time you come up here, leave your grotty WX at the border!
