Paul and Paul Complete POTA Activation

On Thursday morning, Paul M0PJA and Paul G8NRY completed a Parks on the Air (POTA) activation of Thrybergh County Park G-0441, Near Rotherham, South Yorkshire.

The name Thrybergh is believed to come from the Anglo-Saxon TRI = meaning three BERGA meaning wood on three hills.

Anyway, the site is based around the former reservoir and is looked after by Rotherham MBC.

Working conditions were: a Yaesu FT-897, for 2m an N30 and for HF Ham Pro sticks for 40m and 20m

The aim was to try and activate the site using 2m and then move onto HF, while we were both able to activate the site due to time restrictions we only managed to operate on 2m FM.

Despite the overnight and early rain, the activation was enjoyable, as were the Bacon Bread Cakes and Coffee from the local on-site Cafe.

We are already planning our next POTA activation.
