Early activation alert… I’ve been busy on lots of stuff recently, so shamefully quiet on WOTA. Time to change all that. I am sitting at 211 WOTA activations (after a stop-start decade!) and hope to do the last three next week. Weather dependent, as we always say, and assuming nothing crops up to get in the way.
Anyway, the plan is to activate the trio: Loft Crag; Pike o’ Stickle; and Harrison Stickle, exciting tops in Langdale, all on 2m FM. This either on 9 or 10 September. None are SOTA tops (that honour goes to High Raise, nearby), but I hope some WOTA folks, SOTA folks and others are in chaser mode on these weekdays. I’ve never achieved zero contacts from a top, but have come close a few times! I plan to put up a proper activation announcement nearer the time.
If this works out I think I’ll achieve the record for the longest time taken to activate all 214!
