    Hi Glenn,
    Sorry to hear about your dissability.You will be able to do SOTA because there are 2 groups.The activators(those that climb the hills and mountains) and the chaser’s,those that stay at home.Without the chasers it wouldn’t be half the fun.As for Morse,glad your going to learn.If I can help you,maybe slow Morse skeds let me know.Feel free to get intouch.My email is on qrz.com

    Rich told me a story about a team of scientist who went to measure the depth.There is a local legend which says if it ever runs dry then the town of Brecon will be no more!As for it’s depth I have yet to find out.Will find out for you.

    Another great video Sandy. Interesting about that Kettle. I’d like to know how deep it is.

    Great to watch a SOTA activation in super quality.

    I’m new to amateur radio but unfortunately will never be able to do a Sota (due to disability) but will be learning CW 🙂
