GW/SW-039

 GW/MW-039  Cefn Cenarth - 460m, 1 point
Association: Wales  Region: Mid Wales   
Latitude: 52 22 26 N, Longitude: 3 30 57 W
Grid Reference: SN 969762, QTH Locator: IO82FI 
Today's Sunrise: 03:49 UTC, Today's Sunset: 20:38 UTC

For today's activation I parked at SN 979-764 where there is just enough room without obstructing the road or gate.  A lovely warm, sunny day for a change with just a light breeze.  
I followed the vehicle track west for about 500M where it ended, then followed the fence line up towards the summit. Its just over 1k in all, and you can comfortably walk it in 15 minutes.  
The summit of Cefn Cenarth is flat grassland and ideal for large hf antennas.  After setting up I started on 5Mhz but only managed 2 contacts.  Moving on to 7Mhz I couldn't help noticing how quiet the band was with very few stations heard and the noise floor at zero.  After 10 contacts things seemed to dry up so I thought I would try my luck on 20M.  The first S2S of the day was EA2CQ/P with good reports both ways.
Ricky M6GWR was next up from G/WB 005 completing that summit for me, followed by Marco S57MS/P on S5/CP-019. All in all a very enjoyable day.  Many thanks to all stations that helped with my activation of GW/MW-039.  73 Mal  GW6OVD
