I feel sorry for Paul, all you lot spending his money!
I’m sure the proud dad is looking forward to splashing out a bit. Not only has his child passed the Foundation exam, but she has does so with the intention of using it for SOTA purposes. This is a most powerful tool for earning pass-outs, and doubles the lobbying power at home.
I would recommend a few nice trips away Paul - youth hostels, B&Bs etc with some SOTA thrown in, pub meals/curries in the evenings after walking. Give Roxy such a taste of the outdoors hobby that she is always wanting to go, and always asking when the next one is. It worked a treat with Jimmy.
Take no notice of this lot; you don’t need to spend a fortune. I found the VX-110 was an excellent radio, but you could probably pick up something for half that price, which would be more than fit for purpose as a first hand-portable for Roxy.
Or you could just get her a SOTA Beams ‘Waterlog’ for Christmas. (But beware the references to Dickens!).
