Essential info for activators
Target summit: YO/EC-527 "Cota 1576" - www.sota.org.uk/Summit/YO/EC-527 - and YO/EC-017 "Rarau" - www.sota.org.uk/Summit/YO/EC-017
Our Route: For the first summit, Cota 1576, we went straight up from the wooden scene. For Rarau, we followed the road that goes to the TV station.
GPS Track: None available.
GSM coverage (on both summits): Full signal on multiple networks, no problems whatsoever.
1st Summit conditions: Grass on one side, trees on the other. Careful, the north-eastern side of the ridge is quite steep.
2nd Summit conditions: Open, next to a concrete shack and an old radio tower. Windy at times.
Probably the easiest 8 pointers in the whole county, easily doable in the same day, maybe even in winter. There's not much to say about this activation. We started with "Cota 1576" in VHF and UHV, then switched to 18Mhz. Skipped the 14MHz entirely. Then we moved to Rarau and activated it in VHF and UHF only, thanks to our trusty local chasers. The weather was pretty cold and gloomy, but we managed OK. (Pics and video later.)
