Good morning

One is M3FEH from SX45 Kernow South East Cornwall

Now main reason for joining this group is because as of from today Us WAB fans are collecting trig points :roll:

Worked this first one this morning but can not find in data base

SU 373616

Latitude: 51 21 8 N, Longitude: 1 27 54 W

Walbury Hill

As you may find a lot of trig points are connected with Sota activation,s to which one is well in too
First one worked this morning from G/SE-001

Just can not find the trig number :shock:

Any help would be rather grateful

Many thanks again

Greetings,


Worked this first one this morning but can not find in data base

SU 373616

Latitude: 51 21 8 N, Longitude: 1 27 54 W

Walbury Hill


The Ordnance Survey use the name Inkpen for this trig pillar.
They give the coordinates as 437345.97,161624.79 with a height of 297.109
It has a Flush Bracket number of 11798, replacing an earlier pillar which was S1510.

You can find more details in the Trig Pointing:UK records at http://trigpointing.uk/trig/302

Hope that helps :D

Hello Karl,

Although Darius was on the hill of GW/NW-048 he was not near the trig point.

Hi,

Have encountered a few Summits on the Air enthusiasts on hill tops over the years.

I can recall one encounter on Great Whernside above Kettlewell in the Yorkshire Dales.
Seem to remember a claim that they had contact with York Minster! Suspect thats a
bit further than an Ordnance Survey sightline.


Regards
