GoPro SOTA Video from Y Garn (GW/NW-004) 2

After my activation of Elidir Fawr (GW/NW-005) on the 11th of April I walked across the ridge to the neighbouring summit of Y Garn (GW/NW-004). This was to be another 2m FM activation, but I wasn’t complaining the VHF takeoff is phenomenal from these two locations.

I recorded another activation video using the GoPro which says more than I can with words:


The QSO’s

After a short mid-week pileup of 11 stations I finished working 4 DXCC from this location. Best DX was with Don down in Devon, 273km including cross-polarisation losses – that’ll do!

    Very nice video indeed.
    Where can I upload the software you are using for your log.

      Hi Miguel,

      It’s called RumLog NG and it runs on the iPad. You can grab it in the app store.
