Always great to see what you've picked up in the Lleyn. Were these logged from a hotel or on a mountain top?

Wondered if you had time to DX from any digital or analogue locations? (private joke - Tim will understand this)

Great to see Spain in there.

mum always asks me to thank you for discovering aberdaron everytime we go , so thanks :-)


anything significant was logged on the seafronts at Aberdaron & Nefyn

the high spots just let too much english stuff in

reception at the hotel in tudweiliog was dire

we got lost trying to find mount anelog! i comfort myself by the thought that we prob didn't miss anything

the cliff top hotel where canaries were logged is now available for holiday lets

thick fog almost the whole time, no tropo as such, just ducts that died as you climbed up from the sea fronts

Oooooh. Those photos make me want to go on a DXpedition! Anybody else fancy one? We ought to have an annual knees up.

Great photos Tim. Thanks for the contact info too.

Hotels are virtually almost out of the question for us as we have two very large Rottweilers. Really friendly and loving dogs, but not everybody's cup of tea. I have to accept that. They have such a bad press thanks to the media.

We are hoping to rent a caravan close to Land's End later in the summer, instead of the usual tent camping, but it's all uncertain at this point.

Interesting re. the let. We should really organise something. Anybody interested apart from us?

Re. Radio Na Life. Our hobby has been full of things like this lately. You can guarantee that BBC Radio 3 will have a programme of Turkish music then the band open to Istanbul, etc. I've seen things like this so many times.
