Binsey with 2E0XGO Sat 22nd Jun 2024

Binsey LD-041/LDW-190 Sat 22nd Jun 2024 with 2E0XGO.

I had planned to do a round of fells in Wasdale for the LD weekend but I was given an appointment for an operation on the Saturday so had to cancel that. However the operation was cancelled on the Thursday as it was busy and there were no beds available on the Saturday night. That meant I could go walking. After a discussion with Richard we decided to do Binsey.

I met Richard at the car park area at about 10.15 local and we got kitted up and set off walking.

I brought my roach pole and j-pole aerials for 2m and 4m. Radios I used were an Anytone 778uv for 2m and 70cm and a small Anytone 4m mobile. These were powered by a 7 AH sealed lead acid battery.

Richard was using a small beam and that worked extremely well. The weather for a nice change was clear and dry. There was a breeze on top and after a while it was cool when the sun disappeared but it was still pleasant overall.

Over about 3 hours and 30 minutes we made 29 contacts including 4 on 70 mhz which was impressive.

Of these 14 were summit to summit contacts. Contacts made were as follows:-
