I’d planned to head for Gyrn Moelfre GW/NW-049 as my sixth and final summit of the day on Sunday 3rd March 2019.  Following my satnav I reached a road junction that I recognised, with the signpose “Briw”.  I realised I was a few minutes from the parking spot for Mynydd-y-briw, a very easy summit.  I diverted up to it as I reckoned I just about had enough time to squeeze it in before Gyrn Moelfre.

The summit cairn is in the field just behind the radio station complex at the top.  I decided to remain this side of the fence and buildings, at the top of the access track, and make use of the little shelter the buildings provided.

Compared to earlier, things seemed slower to get going on 2m FM, but I ended up making seven QSOs, which in fact was the most of any summit in the day.  I needed to get cracking though, as I wanted to be on the summit of Gyrn Moelfre while there was still some daylight for the photos.
