Parks on the Air
I am really having fun getting into this aspect of the hobby. It’s early days but I plan to take my inspiration from K4SWL and get into activating some of my local parks - I will update this site when I get some results worth posting!
Summits on the Air
A trip to my local summit Walton Hill started a passing interest in this aspect of the hobby too. I have accumulated a few points in a few months - not taking it too seriously!
In fact I have found myself scaling a few hills not in the SOTA database, just for the fun of the climb! Weird!
I have always loved this band and first started using it in the early 1990’s. When I moved to my current location, I was able (in 2007) to erect firstly a long wire and then a full length doublet for the band and finally put out a decent signal. I usually go on the 1942 net on Sunday evenings at 2100 local time, where I hang out with a group of usually slightly-drunken lags/friends! :) (them not me - drunk!)
I will try to add more to this page soon...
