  G/HNP-002 - Beacon Hill

Full Screen Map

A very easy hill and close enough to the M6 motorway for passing drivers to consider a quick activation. There is plenty of room for HF antennas. Avoid ascending from the golf course side. I was told that the track is on private land.

Report 1
 NY515312 - Park on the road by the cemetery gates, or in the cemetery itself if you are that way inclined.
 The route is obvious from the parking place. Follow the road from the cemetery gates towards the hill, then pick a way to the top. This hill gets very busy with dog walkers so pick an activation spot just below the summit.

Report 2
 NY 52154 30953 - Room for several cars on road side just after the bus stop.
 Opposite bus stop there is finger post "Permissive path to Beacon Summit". Follow until you get to the top. Room for antennas but keep away from main area as it gets busy. Car to top 13 minutes.(M0KCB)
