SOTA activation Pendle Hill G/SP-005
I had high hopes that today would get lots of stations in the log, but this was not to be. The 10MHz band seemed very busy today, my QRPp signal was obviously getting lost among higher powered stations. I stayed at the summit for quite a while in very cold conditions, but only five stations made it into the log today.
I hope to start work on another RockMite type rig in the next few days, this time it will be modified to run on 17 meters. I purchased the parts that my junk box couldn't supply yesterday, so I'm all ready to go.
