Sunday 1sth March 2020 - Brown Clee Hill G/WB-002, Titterstone Clee Hill G/WB-004, View Edge G/WB-018, Long Mynd-Pole Bank G/WB-005, Stiperstones G/WB-003, Corndon Hill GW/MW-013, Mynydd-y-briw GW/NW-060, Gyrn Moelfre GW/NW-049, Hope Mountain GW/NW-062, The Cloud G/SP-015 & Gun G/SP-013

After the unscheduled extra activation of View Edge G/WB-018, it was a short drive through Craven Arms and Church Stretton, then the nervy crawl up the Burway onto the Long Mynd.  Given the ice on the access road for Brown Clee Hill G/WB-002 that morning, I was a little concerned about the lanes over the Long Mynd that are not treated in winter, but in fact they are fine and safe.

I parked at the side of the road just to the south of the summit.  Just a few footsteps along the short path would have taken me into the activation zone, but I continued to the summit to allow for best take off with my VHF handheld.  This time it was C4FM all the way with seven quick contacts inside five minutes of operating.  I did call on analogue FM before descending, but got no replies.  Onto the next summit - Stiperstones G/WB-003.
