Map


Best contact of the day was RK9AN @ 4363 miles (7023Km)
Our working conditions
FT817 ND @ 5W
Inverted V dipole with centre at around 7M
Powered by a 7Ah sealed lead acid slab.
Very pleasing result for our first portable PSK31 activation

There is a forest road mostly up to the summit. With a small area to park a car ( SN730 003 ). The last 100 M climb takes about 25 Min to the summit crossing over a fence leading to the trig point.

Nearly there


 There is a pleanty of room to setup equipment. with a stone wall to provide some shelter from the wind. Take care as the wild life and free.
