Winter activation video OE/OO-397, Zeitschenberg


#1

Hello everyone,

Yesterday was a perfect winter day. After about 1:45 h ascend with snow shoes spend about the same time on the summit. The tracks from other ski tourers made wayfinding relatively easy.

The sun was so strong that I could operate without gloves. :sunny:
A lot of S2S contact on 2m FM. 20m was busy with a contest going on but found a spot on the band.

Selfspotting using the soon to be made public OE SMS Spotter worked perfect.

Most unexpected QSO: 17m contact to EA8/PA7ZEE Geert QTH: Gran Canaria

Here the video:

Thanks to all chasers!

Dr OM Joe,
Yes a surprising QSO. Conditions there and here different. Here sun 20C and chasing between sunbath and swimming.

Dear OM Geert,

That was also my thought. Sun at both places but the water in different forms :smile:

@GI0AZA: Just noticed a typo in the video. Esther your callsign is of course logged correct.
@OE5PGM: Sorry Gerhard. I missed the h in your first name.

I should watch the video several times before upload I guess :face_with_raised_eyebrow:
