We (M6BWA and M0JLA) are traveling up to Kendal on Wednesday 9 October for a 3 night stay in the hopes of activating Tarn Crag (Sleddale) G/LD-026 which is our last LD summit but the forecast is not encouraging!!) We then move just North of the Scottish Border to Langholm for a week when we hope to activate some of the little green hills in the area. I always aim to activate and, if possible, qualify any hill on VHF and, if I can with my 5w Yaesu VX-7R, UHF as well. How successful am I going to be as the hills are nearly all 1-pointers and the population is fairly sparse? Will anyone be listening out… and will they answer my (probably increasingly desperate) pleas for help if they hear me??
The summits on the (impossibly long) list include GM/SS 106, 118/9, 136, 146, 168, 179, 196 and 210 to give an idea of the problem. I realise that some of these summits also have masts to add to my problems so I was reading the comments on a possible super-light filter with interest. Like to send me one to test?? If there is any interference around then the VX-7 will find it!
Thanks. M6BWA Viki
