Lank Rigg activated yesterday from the Cold fell road parked by the cattle grid…took the long track which I think is called Heckbarley to the foot of Whoap. Over Whoap and then the main fell Lank Rigg with some great views and hardly anyone to be seen.
From Lank Rigg I heard lots of stations from all over but getting back to them was a different story with 5w on the ft3d. On the way back dropping back down Whoap I was having a crack with Reg 2E0LDF but this time using my back up radio a Baofeng, at this time I fell into a bog and the radio was submerged for a while so its now drying out (I blame Reg )
Was a good walk with some amazing views along the way but dont think the Iphone really captures it all.
All 2mtrs fm
M7XUP (ascending and out of breath… Skiddaw)
2E0FQN (Skiddaw summit)
Also hearing a special event station GV0MHG in Yorkshire but couldn’t break his pile up.
