Going to start SOTA

Post by 2W0PWR on Mon Jul 21, 2008 1:02 am

I am taking an intrest into SOTA as I have some fantastic radios and I could do with doing some walking. I have been looking into the local Summits and we have a few local ones like GW/NW-044 Moel Famau, GW/NW-051 Foel Fenlli and GW/NW-070 Great Orme.

All I need is waterproof coat & pants, walking shoes, rucksack a Sota Beam, 9Ah Gell Cell battery and some waterproof paper / Log Book. As I will only doing climbing small summits for the time being on my own or maybe with GW7AAV then I wont buy a GPS map and leave that costly unit for next year. Hee Hee

I hope to start building the T1 ATU kit next week so I will have that with me to play about on the mountains...
