GW/SW-005 - Fan Fawr

GW/SW-005 - Fan Fawr

10/05/2017

Joint activation and s2s

Barry M0IML/P was coming up from Kent to activate SW for a few days so we were all out to welcome him and there would be a lot of s2s activity today.  Gerald and I were heading for Fan Fawr and looking forward to basking in the glorious sunshine on top of the summit.  
Our GPS track...get to the car park early...you have been warned

We set up two poles, one for HF (linked dipole) and the other with the ‘cable tie’ dipole for  VHF/UHF. 
 Initially we had a flurry of 2m/70cms contacts then Gerald was let loose on HF with me saying ‘Hello’ to some of the regular chasers and taking a few pictures and spotting when necessary…very relaxing :)

My Log
Gerald thoroughly enjoyed his visits to 60/40m and eventually to 20m where his best DX of the day was George N1GB in Vermont, USA…thanks George.

Gerald's log
Barry had been held up on the M25 so was late on summit but eventually made the top of Mynydd Troed much to our relief…needless to say an s2s frenzy took place as 3 summits called him to get him in the log. Quick ‘pack up’ and we were heading for our next summits.
Looking towards Corn Du and PyF
Yes, I was there :)

Our activation set up today:-  (HF) Yaesu FT857 (20 watts +/-). Ant - 3 band link dipole (60/40/20),  (VHF) FT270  (5watts) with ‘cable tie’ dipole.  Antenna support - 7m Fishing poles.
Thanks everyone for the contacts.
