SOTA SP-004, The Station Managers favourite hill, Nice easy walk from Cat and Fiddle pub, parking here and good facilities for toilet and food. I have operated portable 4 times up here and had excellent contacts on HF and VHF. There is a seat close to trig for antenna attaching and again a wall for cover from the elements. I have always used resonant half wave wire dipoles for HF and a lightweight home brew beam for UHF/VHF on all my SOTA summit activities.
