Conditions were terrible totaly flat band here. But nice to see many made the effort locally

We had a much better time on our second outing. One contact wasn't too difficult to improve upon! I think we had 6 1/2 contacts in all, some on both analogue and digital.

It was all local / semi local, even though we had a good takeoff at 850ft from Rhosesmor in North Wales. Best DX was 76km on 3W digital on 23cm. Best QRP was 62km on 10mW digital on 23cm.

Looking forward to the next one.

Yes, a good day out (Saturday afternoon) /P in a soggy NE England!

Only 2 bands for me - 70 and 24 cms.

3 x 2 ways on 24cms. Best DX 56 Km.
2 x 2 ways and 1x 1 way on 70 cms. Best DX 56 Km.

Must do it again, maybe try 13 and 3 next time - more points!
