2m Radio Support for Long Distance Walker

Fifty-nine-year-old Paul Truswell, M3WHO, of Macclesfield, Cheshire, will shortly be starting a 900-mile walk south to north across Great Britain.

Paul is no stranger to long-distance walking having walked east to west across England 560 miles from Lowestoft to Land's End in 2016 and many more in previous years.

This year, Paul is taking on the challenge of walking solo from the English Channel at Dover to Cape Wrath, the far north-west corner of the island of Great Britain, supporting national charity Fibromyalgia Action UK.  

The route is his hardest to date and will take him some 50 days to complete including a few rest days, averaging 18½ miles per day walked. Paul will be camping where other accommodation is not available; he will commence the walk on Sunday 1st April 2018.

Richard Newstead, G3CWI, will be providing logistic support to Paul from his motorhome using the 2 metre FM band during the last, most remote stages of the walk, between Oykel Bridge and Cape Wrath, across the north-west highlands of Scotland.
