Last Wednesday (18th January) I was in the Liverpool area and did an unexpected activation of Billinge Hill (SOTA G/SP-017).
All I had to use were two handhelds, both with their own antennas. As one of them had DMR, I tried putting some calls out on 438.6125 and posting a spot on the Sotawatch web page. This was a weekday afternoon so not the best time for any activity and got a total of 0 DMR contacts.
On 70cm I got a few more contacts and there was a lot less interference,
but it wasn't 100% noise free - the strongest UHF signal up there would
be Airwave, with no UHF business users there any more. I wonder how
that would have affected DMR - it's easier to tell on FM if there is
interference because you can hear it, with digital voice there would be
drop outs or just silence.
I parked at around SD524021 on the road north of the summit which is just below the activation area (unlike every other time I've been up there) and walked past the buildings before crossing the fields. As it was an unexpected activation, the white trainers I had on weren't the most suitable footwear for crossing the muddy fields.
