Just a quick reminder that next weekend is the August Bank Holiday weekend and Practical Wireless are encouraging VHF/UHF operators to operate from Summits on the Air on the VHF bands. It's not a contest, more an excuse to get out and enjoy some portable radio in some great scenery!

Richard G3CWI at SOTABeams has very kindly sponsored some prizes.
I'm planning to be out during the weekend on one or more of our local summits (there aren't many in Oxfordshire!) and will be listening out for other SOTA activity.
