VO-068 & VO-027 today


#1

Very strong and cold wind today on VO-068 and VO-027.

Tryed PSK on 10130… nobody…!
Then CW with home call and club call; not easy to key with frozen fingers…
Always the same aligator french guy…

Then I lost my way in dark woods to go back to my car… walked abt 1 hour more…!
Next time, I will bring my GPS !

300km to drive to go back home.

A nice common SOTA day !

Thanks to all chasers

In reply to F5HTR & F5UKL:

Merci pour les QSOs les amis;
Pas de vidéo cette fois-ci; seulement quelques photos sans intérêt (pour éventuellement prouver ma présence au sommet) des sapins, des nuages gris, une table d’orientation au sommet de VO-068. Bref, rien à voir avec les Alpes ou les Pyrénées.
Vivement dans 3 semaines…!

Hi, Alain, I looked for you on PSK but couldn’t see you, there were several strong PSK stations and one was spreading badly and might have covered you.

Dear Alain!

Huh! It must have been an embarrassing experience! Good luck that you found your car, not a big brown bear! :slight_smile:

Hi Joska,

I was very surprised to find a very desolated forest and mountain. Not usual in France. There were no bear there… and saw no animal, no bird, brrr… what a sad place. Fortunatly, chaser (SOTA chasers) were on air, so I was not alone!
