Friday 31st May 2019 - Longridge Fell G/SP-014
Gig: Joe Longthorne
Venue: Lytham Hall
Plenty of time ahead of soundcheck available to me on this day, so I decided to treat myself to an activator point - a decadent rarity for me!
It was mild and settled as I parked at the path entrance. I decided to walk in my T-shirt with handheld, pencil and logbook. No coat, no jumper, no food, no rucksack, no portable antenna, no 817. It was most pleasant! 23 minutes to walk to the summit.
Five QSOs on 2m FM made from the summit, including S2S with Nick G4OOE and Dave G3TQQ on Black Combe G/LD-030. The return walk took 22 minutes, and I was on my way to the Fylde coast chatting on 2m with Tony G7OEM who, surprisingly, had missed me on the summit. Great gig that night for Joe’s 64th birthday.
