No gig - day off!

So with a day off based in the West Midlands, I decided to head out and bag a few Shropshire (ish) activations while the other band members and crew were having a lie-in and a lazy day.  I headed first for Ludlow, and the very pleasant High Vinnalls G/WB-012.  This is actually just over the border into Herefordshire.  En route I worked Andrew G4VFL/P who was activating Hergest Ridge G/WB-008.

I parked in the usual car park and followed the Vinnalls Loop trail to the summit.  My first QSO on the 2m FM handheld was Andrew again, but not S2S as he was traversing across to Bradnor Hill G/WB-011.  Three more QSOs followed to achieve the qualification, including Rod M0JLA and Viki M6BWA.  Next it was a much shorter drive up to Craven Arms, and Callow Hill G/WB-015.
