I really hope he was not alone and there will be a lot of photos and a good trip report about his experience. I am interested about his gear and what difficulties he had at such altitude. I heard rumors that most electronic device only works up to 10 000ft or so. This particularly was about iPods with hard disk inside.

Well done!
Peter

Dear Marko

Your achievement of the 1st Mont Blanc SOTA activation deserves the highest respect and certainly represents a milestone in the history of SOTA.
The ability to track your tour by ARPS is exemplary; just great !!
The only downside is that I couldn’t work you because of QRL :frowning:

Congratulations!

Vy 73’s, Hardy, DF6PW
