13 aug 2019 SOTA Tour.

Five summits in LX and ON activated yesterday at the last minute. Those were also the last 5 summits for me to have activated all Benelux summits. It was a fairly good day in terms of weather. In the morning a lot of takers on 40 and even 20 meters. In the afternoon it was a bit quieter, and the last activation was actually a little to late in terms of timing. Most takers were probably having dinner. But finally made enough QSOs.
Everything with the KX3 / CW / 5 Watt / 8 x internal 1.2 V penlites and HyEndFed 40/20/10 with 10 meter DXWire pole.

Around 09:00 UTC: ON / ON-021 Plantis de Mesnil.
Around 11:00 UTC: ON / ON-017 Bois Haut.
Around 13:00 UTC: LX / LX-002 Grengenwald.
Around 14:00 UTC: LX / LX-004 Widderbierg.
Around 17:00 UTC: ON / ON-029 Terril Ste-Barde et Tonne.


Congratulations Tonnie on activating every SOTA summit in Benelux. My and my dad Tom M1EYP activated the 4 LX SOTA summits, the 2 PA SOTA summits and 5 SOTA summits in ON back on the last week of June and first week of July this year. We now have 13 SOTA summits left in ON for us to activate all the SOTA summits in Benelux. Hopefully we will return one day to ON to activate these 13 remaining SOTA summits.

Thanks. The summits in ON are easy to activate. So it’s easy. Good luck for you and your dad to activate the remaining summits.

Thanks Tonnie, hopefully me and my dad Tom M1EYP will return in ON at some point in the future to activate the remaining summits, hopefully we’ll work you from those summits and maybe even meet up.
