Watch Hill

After 9 years of SOTA, I worked another new Lake District summit, Watch Hill G/LD-054.
This takes my chaser uniques total to 183 summits. I'd activated Watch Hill once, in 2004 and wouldn't have expected to get anywhere in the south of Cumbria on 2m FM. But I made a contact with Phil G1OPV who was there while I was mobile on Walney Island. For those hard to reach northern Lake District summits, Walney is a good place as there is a clear path as far as the Scafell Pike/Great Gable/Pillar area.

Last night I spoke to M6AYY who was portable on Burney Fell near Kirkby.
