Mynydd Machen - 362m, 1 point

                        The road access to the starting
                         point at ST216 907 from the
                            valley below is very steep and
                           narrow and should be avoided
                           if there is any snow or ice about.



From here the track is quite

steep but its less than a mile

to the summit

                            
    
                       Fantastic view of the channel
                       from the summit and plenty of
                       room for antennas

GW/SW- 038

GW/SW 038 20/10/12. - Mynydd Drumau
 Height 272M / 893ft, 1 Point
Grid reference - SN725002. Locator- IO81BQ
 

Map


Best contact of the day was RK9AN @ 4363 miles (7023Km)
Our working conditions
FT817 ND @ 5W
Inverted V dipole with centre at around 7M
Powered by a 7Ah sealed lead acid slab.
Very pleasing result for our first portable PSK31 activation

There is a forest road mostly up to the summit. With a small area to park a car ( SN730 003 ). The last 100 M climb takes about 25 Min to the summit crossing over a fence leading to the trig point.

Nearly there


 There is a pleanty of room to setup equipment. with a stone wall to provide some shelter from the wind. Take care as the wild life and free.
