In reply to S53X:

Great Milos!

I hope you´re clean and dont use any recipes of Dr.Fuentes :wink:

The only allowed doping on SOTA is “Morsolin” and “Ham-spirit”.

The wx-forecast for tomorrow is bad in DL-land, I hope
you are more lucky in S5-land.

Good Luck with the expedition and the weather Milos.

With the weekend contests / CW Field Day and general QRM
you might consider starting on a clear spot around 10118 KHz
first, them moving down to the weekend mayhem of 7032.


In reply to S53X:

Has anyone any news / info about Milos S53X, on his 10 summit expedition?

I heard him active on the first SOTA at 2215 UTC last night, then again at 0800 this morning, but nothing heard or spotted since then. Propagation seems poor on 40 and 30m today.

He has now missed two SOTA ETA’s.


In reply to G4SSH:

Hello Roy,

Milos S53X canceled his further activations after the fourth activation due to the heavy rain and strong wind. He is OK at home with his wife now.

73, Milos S57D

In reply to S57D:

Many thanks for that info Milos.

It is always a major decision to cancel a planned expedition, but one that is always understood by the chasers.

It is a relief to know that he is home.


In reply to DL4FDM:
Sri Fritz, not Morsolin, but Champagne…

Well it seems that Milos is now OK at home, fine !
Next time will be better.

73 Alain F6ENO

In reply to F6ENO:

I´ve waited for that (J´ai attendu pour ca…) hi hi
A bientôt á Friedrichshafen cher Alain.

Better luck next time Milos. Activating in rain is not fun. That is why Jimmy M3EYP and I are at home today, and not in Snowdonia.

Look forward to your next activation.
