Myself (M0KPW) and Nick G0HIK, were on Corney Fell, Cumbria. With John GI7UGV at Scrabo Tower, Northern Ireland.
This was the 3rd time we'd tried this path, and it was a case of 3rd time lucky.
We had between P5 and P3 both ways using 'bearfoot' of 600mw and with linears of around 2.5w.
We're not sure, but we think this may be the first G to GI on 6cm ATV.
All stations worked brilliantly.
Some images attached.

It was done on 10milliwatts of 10GHz back in 1976 https://www.flickr.com/photos/29874435@ ... 987609173/

Not sure if there's anyone in Cornwall on 5.6GHz apart from G8LCE in Falmouth - and it's too far for a day trip, particularly on a hot summer Friday night / Saturday
All we have to do here in Norfolkshire is await the right conditions and get the troops organised again. Pity we don't have any mountains but I feel sure we can do better than our last attempt. Norfolk lads how about a chat at the Barford rally tomorrow. Myself and Pete G4NJJ will be there?
Note to Noel G8GTZ ---we need you!
You suggested a longer path how about the one from our last location to BENTHAL which I have discussed with Terry G1LPS it looks possible. See the Norfolk to Yorkshire - May 9th and 10th thread.
Alternatively a tie up with the guys in Holland to try a sea path like Bob Platts did years ago on 10 Ghz?
