Walked up to Easington Fell on Wednesday. Only 3 QSOs on 4m and 70cm.
6pm on a Wednesday isn't a good time for a SOTA activation, even from a hill near lots of people, and with an alert on the website.
Not one reply on 145.500. The photo shows the short antenna on the Wouxun 4m rig but I was using the Garex flexi whip.
