G/SC-001


Dunkery Beacon - 519m, 2 points
Association: England  Region: South Central   
Latitude: 51 9 46 N, Longitude: 3 35 14 W
Grid Reference: SS 891415, QTH Locator: IO81ED 
Today's Sunrise: 07:24 UTC, Today's Sunset: 17:32 UTC


My starting point for today's activation is SS904 420.  Here there is parking for 5 or 6 cars and a well established path direct to the summit, which is 1.3Km away with just 70 meters of accent.
A very easy walk with great views across the moors and out over the Bristol Channel
A good site for VHF with plenty of room for antennas so it wasn't long before I managed to activate the summit.
There is an plaque at the summit showing direction and distance to many points of interest, one of which being Sugarloaf Mountain (SW-011) some 52 miles away which our group activated the previous weekend.
Many thanks to all stations listed below for their help in activating G/SC-001
