SOTA road trip, Day 2 - Sunday 2nd August 2020
From Bryn y Fan GW/MW-018, I followed the satnav for Cefn Cenarth. This took me, as expected, onto a rough track that looks like it's not for public vehicles. But after a quarter of a mile or so, it brings you to what is clearly a public car park, and you can rest easy! From here, I walked even further along the track until reaching a large gate on my right-hand side. This leads to a zigzag path up the steep side of the hill, eventually leading out onto the summit ridge.
There is a welcome bench to sit on while operating and enjoying the views from this lofty vantage point. The SOTAwatch Spots revealed that Helen M0YHB/P and Carolyn G6WRW/P were active on 17m SSB from High Vinnalls G/WB-012, so I started off by claiming the S2S contacts. I then added four more on CW with regular SOTA chasers.
It was already 11am local time and I was only descending, effectively, my first summit of the day. Rather sluggish I had to reflect, given my ambitious schedule for the week. The next summit would be the first of several in the South Wales SOTA region - Mynydd Eppynt GW/SW-018.
