SOTA activation Moel Famau

Today, Matt M6MLD, Harry M6HJM and myself M6ILO operated as MW6s & /P atop Moel Famau in North Wales as part of the Summits on the Air (SOTA) programme. Whilst it was chilly, we all made a good number of contacts – some fairly long distance – and had a great day out.

Operating, like my friends, on a Baofeng UV5R 2m FM handheld, I made 12 contacts:
M6NNX, 2E0XYL, M6PMA, G7LAS, G6ODU, G4ZRP, M6TMM, G0HRT, 2E0HGY, 2E0NSR, M6VXL, G1ZGZ – more than the 4 required to ‘activate’ the summit.

Now… pictures!
