Last year, I activated G/SP-013 on Xmas day. This was a thoroughly enjoyable morning with nearlty 100 contacts completed. After the success of last year, I planned the same thing this year. I note there are a number of other activators who have also alerted for Xmas day.
A few days ago, the WX forecast was good, however, Murphys law being Murphys law, things have suddenly changed and the forecast for G/SP-013 has gone from dry to light showers and now to heavy rain. In view of the WX forecast, Ray G7TAS, who is also activating Xmas morning, has changed his alert from G/CE-004 Bardon Hill to G/TW-005 Normanby Top, a summit which is much closer to his home QTH.
I’m going to try my best to active G/SP-013 and have even dug out the very lightweight beach shelter. However, it’s all pretty much in the hands of the WX Gods.
