Tuesday 28th December 2021 - Moel y Gamelin GW/NW-042, Cyrn-y-Brain GW/NW-043, Foel Fenlli GW/NW-051 & Moel Famau GW/NW-043
All that remained was the 40 minute walk along the ODP to Jubilee Tower at Moel Famauís summit. Visibility had been poor all day, but was now the worst it had been. Usually on this approach, every time you turn a corner or reach the brow of small height-gain, you glance up and check how far away the summit (Jubilee Tower) now appears to be. Not today. Jubilee Tower only became visible for the first time once on the summit plateau and within 50 yards of it! I climbed onto the upper part of the tower to activate.

The early start to the day meant that even with a four-SOTA outing, I was still back home in East Cheshire in plenty of time to make dinner for the boys and myself. Very enjoyable. And yet another experience that does nothing to shift my opinions from: (a) VHF is alive and well (b) A rubber duck is (usually) all you need to successfully activate SOTA with a handheld. 17 of my last 18 activations had been qualified this way, in various locations - GW/NW, G/SP, G/NP, G/TW, G/CE.
