(December) Radio Days


Once again not much happening on the ‘local’ front, Barrie GM0 and Graham MM0 on occasions..

SOTA activity was ‘chasing’ Iain, MM3 on Ben Lomond on the 4th, the Ben had quite been well ‘topped’ in fresh snow the night before. On the following Saturday, Iain was active again from Meall a’Bhuiridh, a ‘Munro‘ at the entrance to Glencoe whilst earlier that morning Neil 2M0 had also made the long haul up from South Ayrshire to activate Cnoc Connich on the west bank of Loch Long, Neil and Iain had done well activating as the wind chill had been high. Winter activations, are they worth the extra bonus points?
One week later, Graeme 2M0GIL activated a fog bound Earl’s Seat. (link to Graeme’s ‘Earl’s Seat’ Blog Post)
VHF is still quiet.


20m psk was once again the main mode, the usual European and occasional North American stations were worked, nothing exciting DX wise to report but the odd eQSL card from previous months are still trickling in….in the short period since July, over 600 contacts have been made on psk31.

Audio problems dogged my psk work in the latter part of the month, still to be fixed…
