Welcome to my blog


An amateur radio blog updated regular with my portable and qrp activations & experiences, 2M0ROT

The annual lighthouse activation is nearly here again and yours truly shall be activating my local lighthouse for the 4th year in a row. My location on the 17-18th August will be the ''Perch'' lighthouse in Port Glasgow Ref: UK0200 and I'll be operating on 80, 40, 20 & 10 metre bands.

The weather has been very poor in all my previous activations so I'm hoping for a bit of a break this year..

All details are on the ILLW (international lighthouse lightship weekend) website HERE where you will see the scale of the event, it's a huge weekend in the amateur radio calander.

For anyone who has a QSO with my station there will be an eQSL available to email over.

73 for now

Our first sota of the year was in late March 2016 to the Cobbler GM/SS-020. As you see from the pics it was a fair ole slog but as soon as we got to the summit the mist cleared right on cue. I only operated on 2 metres & 70 cms hand helds to keep the weight down but we got 4 summits to summits with 2 of them in Ireland.

This weekend 28th May we plan to activate it's neighbour (Beinn Narnain) so I'll post up a reort on that.
