SOTA - Long Mynd - Pole Bank - G/WB-005

Long Mynd - Pole Bank - 516m, 2 points

Association: England  Region: Welsh Borders  
Latitude: 52 32 40 N, Longitude: 2 51 49 W
Grid Reference: SO 415944, QTH Locator: IO82NN

The plan for today was to make the most of the winter bonus and snap up 15 points from 3 two point activations.An early start was called for and I duly arrived at the parking spot for Pole Bank at 0930 on a cloudy damp morning. At least with the low cloud I'd been mostly unaware of the sheer drop off the edge of the  narrow road that ascends from Church Stretton!
It's an easy walk from the carpark and I was soon setup in almost zero visibility.
Conditions were pretty good and the 33minutes of operation netted 47 QSOs.

Just as I was packing up the clouds began to clear and there were some momentary views of the spectacular Shropshire landscape. with no time to waste it was off to summit number 2, Stiperstones.
Cold damp cloud.
