SOTA Cycling weekend again, when activators are encouraged to get out on their bikes and make some contacts.
A beautiful summer day on Saturday so, as per last year, I made my first activation Bredon Hill.
This was a 42 mile round trip, with virtually an out and back route this year, along familiar country lanes.

The weather may have been nice, but HF condx were down in the summer doldrums.
I only carried my MTR for 60/20 and only took a 20m EFHW, so was limited to single band working.
Just the 13 contacts but in amongst the mix were S2Ss with F6HBI/p on F/AM-646 and OM3CUG/p on OM/ZA-029. A nice surprise was a call from Phil as I/G4OBK on holiday in Italy and a big signal from KA1R near Boston, Mass.
