So you will be travelling to Tenerife next September… it sounds great. If you would like to call the attention of the listeners, I recommend you to introduce your activation periodically through local repeaters. This action at least could help you to increase the number of contacts. Next link will bring you to URE web site, there you will get information about some repeaters in EA8.
I will let you know that in EA2 we have a usual channel for sota activation located on 145.525-fm, it was chosen close to the calling frecuency dedicated for movil, 145.500. You can use the same frequency in EA8 during your activation time but It won’t be easy to heard you from EA2.
Who knows… maybe someday we will be surprised by a new tropo pass
