Thank you to the chasers, today I bagged another summit using cw. I had to go QRT at about 1450 as the cold began to soak through the many layers and I still had the /P station to disassemble, the frozen sota pole was fun, I mean where do you get a warm fluid to thaw things on top of a remote hill? No, I didn’t do that, everyone knows cold water is a better choice.
When I arrived at the top I discovered my glasses had a layer of frost on them, I thought it seemed excessively cloudy, hi. It was a beautiful day, but ES-021 had a cap of cloud shrouding the summit. By the end of the activation it had cleared and the trip back to the car was pleasant enough.
Anyway, hopefully I didn’t make too many errors and if I did please feel free to let me know so I can develop my operating style.
I knew it was nearly time to wrap up when I could get the brain to key link to send ES-021, got ES-02J twice before giving up and sending 73.
I had alerted that I’d call on 20m aswell, didn’t manage. There was so many calls on 40m that I didn’t get the opportunity. I’m not complaining, the cw pile-up was thrilling and is something I’d never experienced before yesterday, fantastic. Maybe I’ll start on 20m first next time.
