This afternoon I’ll head out into the Setesdal mountains, tenting the night, then attempt to reach, and ativate, LA/AA-054. I’ve already entered an official Alert, just wanted to add some more info. Wx report looks good, so we should make the summit about 9UTC +/- an hour, tomorrow aug. 1st.
First part of the hike - to the planned camp ground - is pretty benign and well marked but headed for the summit, the terrain becomes more unforgiving and you’re more exposed to wind. Map and compass is sure needed for this part
Tried this peak a couple years back, but we had to turn around due to wx.
My rig: HB-1B on 8xAA cells, so power will be from 5W and downwards. Antenna is a GP cut for 14.060, so listen for me there Once at the summit, setup time will be around 10-15 minutes, depending on condx. If anything, I’ll have my friend hiking with me, actually hold the fibre pole while I try for the 4 QSO’s.
Hope to hear you on the band!
