Yesterday as I took my two young boys up Whernside. This was the first time that the little fellas had attempted the hill and was their biggest hill walking achievement to date.
I’d planned to activate Whernside (NP-004) when I was up there looking out over Yorkshire, and I was pleased to arrive on summit to find that Neil 2E0TDX/P and Karen 2E0XYL/P were located on Ingleborough (NP-005), and Rob G0HRT/P was located on Pen-y-ghent (NP-010). A further S-2-S contact was achieved when Peter MW1CNL/P joined us from Mynydd y Cwm (NW-076) and thanks to Phil G4OBK who patiently waited while I changed antenna.
All in all it was a great day. My boys put in so much hard effort to get to the top, the Yorkshire Three Peaks were activated simultaneously and every drop of beer at the Station Inn was well worth the miles under our boots. However, I must apologise to any stations who were hoping to make contact with me but the wind was picking up and my lads needed to get moving. It was nothing personal!
