GW/MW-010

Summit Information for GW/MW-010
Gwaunceste Hill - 542m, 2 points
Association: Wales  Region: Mid Wales   
Latitude: 52 11 28 N, Longitude: 3 13 59 W
Grid Reference: SO 158555, QTH Locator: IO82JE 
Today's Sunrise: 08:08 UTC, Today's Sunset: 16:02 UTC 

The starting point for today's activation was SO 165-534 where there is enough room to park a couple of cars but the access roads leave a lot to be desired.  From here its about 2.3k to the summit with just 146M of ascent.  There is a pretty obvious vehicle track heading off in the right general direction so I followed this most of the way up the gentle gradient.  As you reach the last of the trees at SO 162-546 the track becomes a little vague and the gradient becomes steeper.  At some points along the way I passed through areas of knee deep heather which combined with the gradient made progress rather slow.
At the summit there is room for whatever antennas you may wish to use, in this case I just used my 60/40 inverted V.  Unfortunately this had to be a quick activation as I had promised to be at my granddaughters  Christmas concert shortly after lunch so I decided to just work 5Mhz.
Steve, (G6LUZ) was kind enough to spot me on my second contact and within 25 minutes I was all done.  After working Allan, (GW4VPX) summit to summit, I left him with the frequency and was off down the hill to enjoy the afternoons festivities.
Many thanks to all chasers for all your continued support.
