Sunday 25th August 2019 - Wentwood GW/SW-033, Ruardean Hill G/WB-021 & May Hill G/WB-019

Gig:  You, Me & The Dancefloor

Venues:  The Old Bank, Keynsham & Old Sodbury Village Hall

So straight after the second (evening) gig with You, Me & The Dancefloor, I dorve over the Severn Bridge and allowed my satnav to lead me into the car park for Wentwood.  Pleasingly it was deserted.  I tucked myself into the far end of it by the barrier, and went off to sleep on the reclined passenger seat in my car.  Also pleasingly, I slept well right through until nearly 7am.  Bonus.

Summit of Wentwood    Tom M1EYP    30m GP antenna

Soon after waking, I gathered my rucksack and made the short almost horizontal walk to the trig point.  The car was already easily in the activation zone in the car park, but I'd might as well do at least a little walk!  There wasn't the greatest amount of space in which to set up my 30m groundplane antenna, but I managed to shoehorn it in.  Six QSOs on each of 30m FT8 and 30m CW was more than satisfactory, and I commenced my long journey home with a short drive over to Ruardean Hill G/WB-021.
