See Morris Hill

Another 0-point attempt at See Morris Hill (SOTA GM/SS-274) on Wednesday afternoon. 2 QSOs were made, the furthest being to MW0PAD in Holyhead. See Morris Hill is in a bad location for the south because Criffel is in the way and there doesn't seem to be much activity in the Carlisle area, at least for SOTA chasers.

Used the FT-817 into a half wave mobile antenna. The poles are from an old garden gazebo which we were throwing away. They are just the right size to fit in a car boot and the mobile antenna fits inside one of them for carrying. The coax is connected through a SO239 coupler.

The radio mast at the top of the hill is known as Riddings Hill.
