I braved the nasty weather here on Saturday 28th November and Sunday 29th November 2015, the objective being to add some new unique calls worked to my Challenge total. I wasn’t able to travel further afield, so I had to just visit my local summit The Cloud G/SP-015, so there wouldn’t be any increase in multiplier. I just hoped that 10m would be open and active so I could find some new calls.

There was activity, and the band was behaving reasonably conditions-wise.

Saturday 1147 to 1303z: 38 QSOs, all 10m CW
Azores CU: 1
Belarus EU: 1
Bulgaria LZ: 1

On this second (Sunday) activation, I actually set up below the cliffs on the edge of the summit plateau in order to shelter from the gale-force winds. It seems my antenna could still “see” over the pond though!

Radio: Yaesu FT-817 running 5 watts.
Antenna: “Limited edition” (ie only 1 ever made) 10m/6m SOTA Challenge vertical with GP from SOTAbeams.

I did try running on a frequency a few times, and initally with a spot (thanks Richard). However, the only callsign I recognised as a chaser was VE1WT. All good fun.


Same here in South of France. I went to my personal “Cloud” F/AM-617 and during the 2 days on 10M Cw, I did Qso N4EX, VE1WT and DL2DXA (usual sota chasers) within 112 Qso. Many DX (39 Dxcc, 17 Zone with inverted V and FT-817 running 5 Watts.

OK understood…



Looks like a one-horse race here in the UK. But hey it’s not a race.
