SOTA - Fan Fawr - GW/SW-005

Fan Fawr - 734m, 6 points

Association: Wales  Region: South Wales
Latitude: 51 51 45 N, Longitude: 3 29 49 W
Grid Reference: SN 970193, QTH Locator: IO81GU

After Pen y Fan it was time to depart the crowds and ascend Fan Fawr!
It's unbelievable the difference between these two summits. One is incredibly busy, the other you'll be lucky to see a soul.
And a soul and his dog we did see. Just after setting up a guy turned up with his dog, pitched his tent and made himself comfortable for an overnight camp. Meanwhile in the distance, humanity continued to clamber up towards Pen y Fan just across the valley!

Band conditions were again sparkling, with 67 QSOs in the log but only a single S2S with OM/SP9AMH/p on OM/ZA-045

Two good activations in beautiful spring weather. A pleasant 20 points :-)
