Hi Terry / All
I had a rest day today, its very hot, and plan to activate two easier DL/WS less mountainous summits tomorrow from Mittenwald - now alerted. The WX forecast is good. I will follow the same operating pattern as I did yesterday, with Roy alerting me on 10118 first.
I ran out of time on my last border activations yesterday of DL/KW-004 OE/TI-628 and did not try 17m because of this. At 1900 local time I was still at 2100m worrying about the daylight on an untried route. I reached the Brunnsteinhutte Mountain Hut (1560m) at 2000L for a rewarding drink and short rest. I left woodland at 2130 just in time, before it was fully dark, returning to Seefeld by Taxi. 200 QSOs were completed in CW/SSB over the day, I used up one 3 cell 4A LIPO, one 4 cell 5A LIPO and half used one 4 cell 5A LIPO over the four activations, running 50w all day.
I’ll put a few pictures on Flickr of yesterdays tour.
