We parked up by the top (second) transmitter station, and began the walk
across the hilly moorland. After climbing a wall stile, the route was undulating
with several significant and energy sapping ups and downs. Nothing that would
cause anyone any problems, but sufficient to refocus our determination towards
the end of a long day. But it wasn't a long walk, and about 20 minutes from the
car brought us out by the trig point at the summit.
Working conditions were as on Tarn Crag
G/LD-026 earlier, with Jimmy operating 2m FM from the Yaesu VX-110 and SOTA
Beam, while I concentrated on 30m CW from the Yaesu FT-817 and halfwave dipole.
This time it was 20 QSOs for me, and 8 for Jimmy. Content at successfully
achieving the day's optimal objectives (Grayrigg Forest was only earmarked as a
'possible' 2nd summit), we packed up and strode back to the car. An
interesting 'landmark' was my QSO with DM1LM - my 10,000th from SOTA summits!
