Fantastic effort Gerald to go to all those summits and amazing how the panoramic view works as well.
I can only imagine that type of mountainous area nothing like that in vk5.

Hi Gerald

That is a magnificent school yard! Oh to a be a student there - hi hi!



Hi Ian, last year i “guide” Gerard VK2IO to 2 summits there at about 2600m asl.
That was in summer time and no snow on the ground.


Thank you for sharing this with us.
What a beautiful place, Gerald.
Congrats for the great work done activating all those summits.

A pity SOTA had not been invented yet in 1993/1994 when I worked in Nice for a few months. I had visited a few of the more prominent points in dépts. 06 and 83 with an old TH-75 in my coat pocket (it still works!), but might have tried a few more …

Hello Jan-Martin,
My first Sota was in 1989 on Mont Bauroux (i didn’t even know one day it will be F/AM-415).
If you come back there i will guide you on the highest summits of the area…
For now you can watch the photo i get when on summits here:
73 Jan-Martin and see you.


Gerald: I’m wondering what’s your age… :wink:

BTW: The photo is awesome and your effort is outstanding!
