I have arrived at Naxos Island with my wife and my son yesterday. There were no problems with the hf-equipment at the airport. I have had the Rig in my rucksack wth me in the cabin and the antenne etc. in my case. I have planned to take my new IC-703 with me to SV-land, but unfortunately the TX have had a failure: no tx output! The local dealer have had fixed the problem, the tx predriver was dead. therefore I decided to take the ft-817 with me, with this rig I never have had any problems.
At the next Sunday morning I will start from Naxos town to the summit Zas early and I hope to be there in time. I plan to start at 14.285 kHc in SSB about 10 h GMT. Other bands are possible, I will use the FT-817, elecraft-ATU and a dipol with open-wire-line.
I hope to have contact with many of the SOTA people!
…sunny greetings from Naxos, hope to here you soon!
