Another bit of today. This time Pillar G/LD-006.

31 qso's spread across 30m CW, 2m FM and 2.3Ghz FM.

@g7kse Looks amazing! How long of a hike to get up there?

@crossbar it's an 8 mile round trip from Wasdale head car park. I take around 25 minutes to do a mile on terrain like that. I did stop and fill up with water from the beck as well.

Its a great summit, loads of space and easy to get to. Less bother than Kirk Fell, which is also brilliant for SOTA and almost always empty.

Easy to get to ennerdale and Buttermere from there as well.

@g7kse amazing views! Now It's so different from the UK I've seen. Now I want to go to the Northen part of the Great Britain.

BTW, can you tell more about the microwave setup you are using?

@g7kse Beautiful location. I'm curious about your setup for 2.3 GHz. Transverter? Antenna? Was it an organic contact or a sked?
