GW7AAV, GW7AAU and 2W0YLO will be in Scotland activating summits as GM7AAV/P, GM7AAU/P and 2M0YLO/P for two weeks from the 14th - 30th August 2010.
Hopefully we will have Internet access and be able to post alerts, but I am not holding my breath. Mobile coverage has been problematic on our previous trips but I will self spot if possible. In case we don’t alert I will call first on ssb 5.3985, then 7.118, 3.666 if time and conditions allow 14.285 and 28.495. We will also operate on 2m FM.
Summits should include…
GM/NS-135 Cnoc Corr Guinie
GM/NS-148 Cnoc an t-Sabhail
GM/NS-150 Cnoc Mor
GM/NS-151 Mount Eagle
GM/NS-152 Hill of Nigg
All of which have rarely been activated for SOTA. This hopefully is not an extensive list and if we get some good weather we may be travelling a bit further afield to find some more. We may break our journeys to and from GM to squeeze in some outside of the target area as well.
We also hope to be able to set up station in the holiday accommodation which is on the A9 Evanton, Dingwall, Ross-Shire and will be looking for chaser points. Calls from WAB collectors will be welcome for NH66. IARU locator IO77tp.
Hope to speak to as many of you as possible.
