I’m slowly waking up from my winter sleep … hi.
My first activation trip for 2016 is coming up.
I’m going to the Bergheim Funkflohmarkt (hamfest) in Bergheim (DL) on March 12.
I will be staying in a hotel in Jülich, not so far from Bergheim, and very close to one of the few remaining summits in that area (after March 1st): DM/NW-134 Sophienhöhe.
On friday March 11, I’d like to activate as much ON summits as I can, from these four:
ON/ON-010 Baraque Fraiture
ON/ON-013 Bois de Hodinfosse
ON/ON-011 Sur Clair Fa
ON/ON-001 Signal de Botrange
(all depending on weather and traffic …)
The hamfest is on saturday morning, in the afternoon I would then like to go to
Sunday is not sure, if the weather is good, I may go back to DM/NW-123 Sophienehoehe and take part in the UBA 2m contest (Sunday 7-11h UTC, CW/Phone) , and work some more chasers
On monday I’m going back to Belgium, maybe I can visit the two PA summits I did last time, PA/PA-002 and PA/PA-003
Now some questions …
Does anyone have some access info for DM/NW-134 Sophienhöhe (which parking lot to use, shortest walk to the summit, where best to setup …)
The website of DO2KFC seems to be down …
Any SOTA activators also going to the Bergheim Hamfest?
Any activators also going to one of those summits on those days ?
Would be nice to have some joint activation and/or have an eyeball chat …
Let me know and we can arrange some meeting schedule
I finally got my Linx 7" tablet (with Windows 8.1 & FLDIGI) working via the mic/ear connector, via a homebrew interface into the KX3, so I could do some digital, but is it worth the trouble ? is anyone interested in PSK (or RTTY) for SOTA ? Let me know if yes …
and for everyone … hope to see you in my log !
