F/JU-006 Activation report


#1

Hi friends

Last sunday, the WX forecast was not good in the East of France.
F0CRM Christian, F0FGB Romain and F0FNC Laurent had about 150 km to drive to JU-006, “Le Grand Colombier”.

Walking up to the foggy summit, they found a lot of snow !
They activated in such bad conditions, always with their well-known “ham spirit” i.e. with few friendly words…
They made 39 QSO FM and SSB with a FT817 2.5W and an IC 706 10W.

Please, have a look at their photos, I can assure you they were not in Antartica.

Congratulations boys !

73 all

PS: they didn’t win any winter bonus point.

Very good job made by this young OM, new-comers in SOTA.
Well done !
They have began auspiciously in FM and SSB.
How to do CW with big mittens ? :-)))
