G/WB-002 Brown Clee Hill. 28th January 2017.
We took about 45 minutes to reach the summit with 2 or 3 rest stops to catch a breather and try take in the sights between the passing clouds. As you can see from photo No 1 top left visibility was not great at the start. Jamie (my son) set up the 2M dipole before getting his cooker set up ready for warm food and drink, I tested the antenna with the analyser and was happy with the result so started to erect the Moxon for the 20M.
I have now had a few people ask about the size of the Moxon so have included a few photos as seen below.
As seen in the right hand photo I have now purchased a nice SOTA flag from SotaBeams, We had a few visitors during our activation and as always they wanted to know what we were doing and one of them commented on the flag. I was glad to explain the reason for the activation and the equipment as always.
|Towards the end of the activation the weather cleared up and we could admire the views. 13 QSO's on 2M and 10 QSO's on 20M, so I thought a very good day. Greece being the furthest contact at 1524 miles away.|
