*DAY 2 on EU-116*

Another lovely day on the Isle of Man, well, so far. There is a chance of rain later this afternoon/this evening.

We are just getting our gear together and will shortly be heading out from the hotel. Today's plans are as follows:

We are driving over to Slieau Freoaghane (GD-002) where James MD0ZZO and Matt 2D0XIS will be climbing it to activate it on 2m/70cm. Meanwhile , Mark MD0MJH and Kevan 2D0WMG will be setting up on HF (most probably 40m around 7.150). (Hopefully today's HF operation will be more fruitful than yesterday's where we struggled to work more than about a dozen contacts between the two of us.)

After GD-002, we will be making our way over to Snaefell (GD-001) and all be heading up there. Operation will be on 2m FM/SSB.

73 for now from all here.
