Lots of WOTA activity today

It has been a glorious day here in Cumbria, the English Lake District, and lots of amateur radio enthusiasts have been out making contacts fron the tops of the Wainwright fells, taking part in the Wainwrights On The Air scheme.

To my knowledge, we had Rick M0RCP and Tom M3OOL who completed a walk taking in five WOTAs - Grisedale Pike, Hopegill Head, Grasmoor, Eel Crag and Sail. There was also another Rick, G0VMW, who was on Skiddaw and the lesser summit of Skiddaw Little Man.

Due to a back injury I have unfortunately been unable to take advantage of any of this spell of nice weather by getting out on the fells myself. I was happy to catch the first few activations from the home station here in Cockermouth, but the arrival of friends for a barbecue put paid to any hopes of being on the radio when the later ones were reached. There's always another day!
