I spent the last week in Puy St Vincent, dpt 05, in the “Massif des Ecrins”.
So, I planed to activate some F/AM summits.
On friday 27th March, I went to F/AM-340, starting at abt 1400m, I reached the summit (2040m) 3 hours later. Usualy, during summer, I climb this summit in 1 hour and half, but the snow was fresh and deap, so the ascent was very difficult for me. Fortunately, the WX was very nice.
I made 44 QSO on 40m CW.

On saturday 28th, I was on F/AM-340, la “Tête d’Oreac”.
Nobody when climbing, nobody on the summit… I was a poor alone man !
I started calling at 11h20 UTC and found a huge pile up during 1 hour and half. 73 QSO one after the other on 40m CW, starting with F/SP7JYM/P on F/NO-025. Another S2S with S57XX/P, Jure on S5/RG-010. I missed F5IUZ/P on F/AM-451. May be Moïse was too close, in dead zone. A very big thank to DJ5AA, Al who tryed to help me for this QSO. And an other thank you to all chasers keeping quiet when I was calling Moïse… It was very nice (and rare… !)
Best 73 to all
