G0VQW SOTA activation

9th January 2011 saw my first SOTA (Summits on the air) activation.The weather turned nasty.But both myself and Bill G4WSB managed to activate Black mountain GW/SW041 and Wentwood GW/SW 033. It was wonderful to operate in such remote locations where there is ZERO noise!An experience to be repeated again and again!
It was fun to work the pileups and be “On the hot end”. My first QSO was with Roy G4SSH who was the UK’s Chief Morse examiner…I couldn’t have wished for a better choice of first QSO partner as I operate CW almost exclusively. Now I’m off to plan my next expedition.
