Gig: Joe Longthorne
Venue: Carnegie Theatre, Workington
I’d agreed to rendezvous with the guitarist at Penrith, so this simple summit just off J37 was an obvious choice.
I parked at Roan Quarry as usual and walked along and up the grassy trail to the summit.
I returned to 20m for a change. Six QSOs on FT8, the highlight of which was 9K2HQ - Kuwait. Seven contacts added on CW, including N4EX and KI4SVM. I went to SSB to bag the S2S with EA1GTX on EA1/LE-153, before making a single QSO on 2m FM, before descending.
Lovely gig that evening in Workington, and interesting to see who’d been at the theatre before us. I overnighted at Cockermouth Travelodge, looking forward to a stroll up Blencathra G/LD-008 the next morning.
