SOTA road trip, Day 6 - Thursday 6th August 2020
From Kit Hill G/DC-003 it was another longish drive over beyond Exeter, but a relatively quick and easy one with most of it being on the A30 dual carriageway. My satnav landed me at the minor road junction beside the track leading to the summit, and I parked on a grass verge. As I reached the gateway onto the track to the transmitter compound at the summit, I noted it had become something of a building site, and signs forbidding access were in place. No problem though, the road where I was standing was a mere 1m lower than the actual summit height, so simply set up on the grass verge beside the gateway!
I was in no mood to extend this particular activation on a roadside verge with building works in progress on the other side of the hedge behind me! Five QSOs were made on 17m CW, including a summit-to-summit contact into the Czech Republic. I packed up and got on my way to Staple Hill G/SC-004.
