SOTA - GW/SW-015 - Mynydd Llangorse

Mynydd Llangorse - 515m, 2 points
Association: Wales Region: South Wales
Latitude: 51 55 56 N, Longitude: 3 13 28 W
Grid Reference: SO 159267, QTH Locator: IO81JW

A fairly quick descent of Myndd Troed and a somewhat slower ascent of Mynydd Llangorse brought me to my favourite operating spot next to a small pile of rocks, offering some protection from the cold wind.

A quick set up and the calls start rolling in, 20 QSOs on 14Mhz, 12 on 10Mhz including a S2S with M1EYP/p on G/SP-015, and 17 on 7Mhz including a S2S with G4ASA/p on G/TW-004.

Quite a few walkers about during the afternoon and several stopped for a chat.

With plenty of time and daylight still available, I decided to go on a little hike out to the Trig point (which isn't at the summit) and back just to put in a few extra miles.

Arriving back at the "car park" there were now seven cars. I've never sen a single car here previously. One reason I stay away from activating at weekends!

Total for the day of 5.1 miles walked and 1630' of ascent.
94 QSOs and 5 S2S.
Temperature hovering around +3ºC.
Light wind and some mist.
