I was back in Cardiff again in early June for a few days and had one free day to head up into Mid-Wales and do some activating. I had to be back in Cardiff by 5.00pm on the day for a family meal out, so this restricted me to activating two unique mid-Wales summits on 2m FM. Leaving the city at 6.00am after a two and a half hour drive I was parked up and walking to Pen y Garn MW-004 at around 8.45am. The route taken from the south was a good one, (GPX file now loaded into the SMP). This was a 42 minute walk from the car, mostly on tracks, with some long grass initially.

I scored on 2m FM using 40 watts and a vertical dipole, with just five contacts in 12 minutes, two contacts were with operators in the same vehicle - GW4VPX/M and GW4ZHI/M. I made my way back to the car as quickly as I could so I could reach the 2nd summit of MW-038 (Disgwylfa Fawr) by lunchtime.
