Final Summit – Mynydd Machen GW/SW-030

28th May 2015

I initially intended to park in the town of Machen and walk across the hills to the summit, however due to my lateness coming off the previous summit and some traffic issues, I decided to park near the summit at the foot of the road leading up to the Cell Phone towers.

After a short uphill walk I reached the trig point and set up the VHF antenna and soon activated the summit and secured the point. I then erected the Sotapole and the HF dipole.

For the next 40 minutes I managed 7 contacts on 20m (including KA1R for the third time this week) and 14 contacts on 40m.



  • Quiet, easily accessable and with lots of space to put up the HF antenna.
