GM/SS-198 – East Lomond – 448m – 1 Point

As part for our Scotland holiday I planned a few SOTA activations. It turned out that the hills in Fife were barely activated on HF so far. GM/SS-198 could be squeezed into the family diary before having lunch in Kirkcaldy. I parked the car on the East side of the hill und walked to the top within 15 minutes. Weather was very windy and I had to errect my antenna on the East side instead of the preferred Southern slope towards Central Europe.
