While setting up the shack on arrival quite a few of the members got involved  in setting up the 6m and 4m beam antennas on the group’s trailer mast. The antennas are both YU7EF designs with the top antenna being a 6 element EF0606 for 6m and the lower antenna a 7 element EF0407 for 4m.

Found on Youtube by Gavin M1BXF. Thanks to Luca IS0YTG for posting his video clip working us on Harris from Sardinia.


Thanks to Martyn M1MAJ for the video – he goes on to say:

The summit, Y Llethr, was a fine one for playing radio: a wall for shelter, a nice flat grassy area for antennas, and wonderful views.view from Y Llethr by M1MAJ I’ve attached a more distant view of the station as there’s not really a lot to see of it in the video.

One thing we really noticed on our summit contacts was that the audio quality of GS3PYE was superb.

Gav M1BXF pursuing his other passion – fly fishing one of the lochs. Unfortunately no decent sized fish, so all catches got thrown back to grow a bit more!

Another slightly better shot of Colin G4ERO operating from a summit. Taken from 2km away on another hilltop with a Canon EOS 450D and a 200mm telephoto zoom.
