Not long to go now to the yearly jaunt of the StrumbleHead Team to Ramsey Island, of the South West Coast of Wales.
MC0SHL will be QRV from 12th thro 16th July 2012 on all HF Bands using SSB and Digimodes. Listen for us as well on 6m, the band was in good shape last year so remember to keep a look out for MC0SHL.
Ramsey is named after Saint David (Dewi Sant) and is the Patron Saint of Wales. It was also the home of his Confessor Saint Justinian. The Island is less than 2 miles long and its highest point is 136M (446ft) above sea level. It is renowned mainly for its Seabird Colonies as well as its steep Cliffs and other wonderful scenery. It also has the most important Grey Seal Colony in Southern britain today. Photo above is taken from Ramsey island and looking across the water to mainland Wales.
