I did place an alert, but I guess I could have done that a bit earlier. On the other hand, we didn’t want to lock the trip date too early, as the weather forecasts seem to change daily at this time of year…
Anyway, in the end the weather was just fine, a bit cloudy but with no rain at all. We also got the station up almost on the announced QRV-time, could be a record… Ville, OH6FSE got his first activation point and we had many new Finnish chasers. Hopefully some of them will keep chasing in the future as well.
Tomorrow, on 30.9., I’m returning to Riihivuori, OH/JS-056. I guess it’s becoming something of a tradition to do that on the last day of September… In Finland, we have this bicycle kilometer race every summer, in witch teams from workplaces and clubs log all their kilometers between May and September. 30.9. is the last day, so I’m having a bit of sprint now. And what would be the better way to do that than SOTA activation?
I plan to be QRV around 1500 UTC, but we’ll see.
