Summit to Summit QSOs: 6
This really is my local SOTA, just a few miles from home by car. And it's a nice easy walk that takes around 20 minutes if walking from the Gawthwaite side. It's a summit I've activated may times for SOTA and contests. But today I activated it for the 2021 LD SOTA weekend - only had about an hour and a half of time available, but good to be able to take part.
This was a Sunday morning activation and I logged 27 QSOs including 6 S2S; Shining Tor, Lambrigg Fell, Gummer's How, Red Screes, Fell Hill and Mynydd Bodafon. It's a good 2m takeoff to the South from this location. Unfortunately missed a lot of other S2S due to only having a limited amount of time available. Thanks, as always, to those who came back to my calls.
