GW/SW-031

 GW/SW-031  Mynydd Uchaf - 358m, 1 point
Association: Wales  Region: South Wales   
Latitude: 51 46 35 N, Longitude: 3 51 45 W
Grid Reference: SN 716103, QTH Locator: IO81BS 
Today's Sunrise: 07:03 UTC, Today's Sunset: 16:54 UTC 


Forecast looking good today following the recent storms, so I took the opportunity to revisit Mynydd Uchaf. Time was limited so this looked like a good choice.  I parked on the grass at SN717 095 and headed off north towards the summit just under 1 kilometer away.  The path is a little vague  and quite wet underfoot in places but very easy walking  as the gradient is very gentle.  At the summit there are plenty of deep hollows and also the ruins of a small building which offer good shelter from the wind.  
After exhausting 5Mhz I spent some time on 7Mhz, but the band was extremely busy, making it hard to find a quiet spot. I eventually settled on 7.125Mhz and it wasn't long before Allan (GW4VPX) came back to my call, and was kind enough to put a spot on.  After that it became very busy and the contacts rolled in thick and fast.
Many thanks to all those who helped with my activation of GW/SW-031 and my apologies to anyone I wasn't able to work.
