GS3PYE/P & GS6PYE/P on the Isles of Mull, Lunga, Staffa & Iona

May 13, 2012 Comments off

I had an excellent week with 16 other Camb-Hams on a DXpedition to the Isles of Mull (EU-008) and Lunga (EU-108) on the west coast of Scotland, using the call signs GS3PYE/P and GS6PYE/P. We also managed short trips to the Isles of Staffa (EU-008) and Iona (EU-008) using other call signs during the week.

My own personal highlight of the trip was the 24 hours I spent camping on the uninhabited Isle of Lunga, with four other Camb-Hams, two radios and lots of puffins. We visited the Isle of Staffa on the way back to Mull and operated for an hour as MM0MJH/P on 20m.

Another fine memory was carrying loads of kit up a hill on Mull so that I could witness my first (and only) ever 10GHz contact. Luckily there was some fantastic scenery to look at while waiting for contacts.

The weather during the week was great and the radio even better.
