We'll certainly give it a try. Kirkstone is well blocked and so is Jubilee Tower, but the latter looks do-able if we can find a parking place just up the road in Quernmore.
Which bands will you have? Are you going right to the top? There'll be station(s) in North Wales that you might work from there.
Planning to be qrv from Bylchau IO83FD72 on Saturday 9th contest. Will have the following bands/modes:
3cm DATV plus analogue receive
Hope to work a few of you, good luck.

Myself and G0HIK shall be out from around 1pm on Saturday in IO84KD88 - South Cumbria, near Ulverston.
I'll be on 5.6Ghz and am hoping to be out for 3 or 4 hours.
Good height and LOS to the south and some north - see my location https://www.heywhatsthat.com/?view=NKJXSACA
If you want to arrange a sked in advance please PM me, failing that I'll be monitoring 144.750 FM for any activity on the day.

Scoring is 2 points/km for a 2-way contact and half that for a one-way contact. Rules are identical to the IARU Contest Rules, except that the only valid band is 146 MHz.
Remember that a £50 Amazon Voucher will be awarded to the winner of the 146 MHz BATC Contest.
Some notes on the Scoring spreadsheets:
- You must "Enable Macros" on opening the spreadsheet to all all the calculations to run.
- To be valid for points, a the report must be at least P2. By definition, a P1 picture is not good enough to read numbers.
The spreadsheet for 146 MHz is here: https://wiki.batc.org.uk/images/2/28/14 ... YYMMDD.xls
Completed logs should be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org before Monday 25 June.
As previously advertised, the following awards will be made to UK-based stations during the 9/10 June Contests:
A £50 Amazon Voucher to the winner of the BATC 146 MHz Contest
A £50 Amazon Voucher to each station in the Best DX 2-way 5.6 GHz Contact
A £50 Amazon Voucher to the transmitting station using a Portsdown system received at the the furthest distance (any band)
Here is the small print:
- Award entrants must have been located within the UK for the contest, but need not be BATC Members
- Award entrants must have operated within the terms of their Amateur Radio Licence
- Award entrants must have conducted themselves within the spirit and letter of the published IARU Contest Rules
- To qualify for the Portsdown award, the transmitted DATV signal transport stream must have been generated by a Raspberry Pi running the Portsdown software. This permits the use of Portsdowns with DATV Express or BATC Filter-modulator boards.
- In the event of a dispute, the decision of the BATC Committee is final
The site is very good in all directions and I also hope to work the team on Brown Clee plus other on 146Mhz.
