Hello to all,
I only had time for a 30 minute operation on this first day of SOTA Norway. LA/OS-003 was chosen because of very easy access. It’s located just above Holmenkollen(known to some for the skijump). It’s a very short walk from the parking lot if you park at the very top, but you don’t have to drive if you don’t want to. It will take about 1-2 hours on asphalt from the bottom of the hill if you like walking. You can also take the metro, Holmenkollbanen, from Oslo Centrum to last stop Frognerseteren stasjon, 469m ASL. It’s also perfect for the disabled as you can use roads, asphalt and gravel, all the way.
GW0DSP was the first QSO at 06:37 UTC with 6 more station to follow before I had to close down. Thanks to all for the QSO’s, it was great fun and very far from what I normally do(see la8w.com), QRO contesting.
Congrats to LA1TPA and LA1ENA for their activations and I’m very grateful for all the help they have provided to SOTA Norway.
My next activation will probably be from a summit north of Oslo, in the AH district.
BTW, the lakes on OS-003 is still frozen and there are spots of snow all over.
