SOTA Activation in the Middle of a Lava Field (Señalo)


#1

I’ve just gotten around to writing up one of my more unusual SOTA activations. This one is for Señalo (EA8/LA-011) which is in the middle of a lava field and pretty volcanic by all accounts.

Quite an experience, maybe not to be repeated!

Thanks to all the chasers!

That is extremely impressive, there must be something like a dozen cinder cones in that one shot. I imagine that you must have got something like a year’s wear out of your boots in that one activation.

You’re not wrong Brian. My boots took some punishment on Lanzarote, but thankfully held together for La Palma and Teneriffe! Very impressive island by all accounts :grinning:
