Hi Kurt

Congratulations on this special milestone – 8 Mountain Goats and about 15 years Summits on the Air are something special!

It seems that you like it . . . so I hope you may visit many many beautiful summits in your beloved mountains in the future.

Congratulations, Kurt, on such an outstanding achievement!
My Log showed me we’ve got 73 SOTA QSOs up to now (nice number!)
Most are chaser QSOs while you were activating, but there are also a good number of our QSOs where you either chased me from your base station or you were also activating and our QSO was a S2S. Thank you very much for so many QSOs and so many summits.
I’ll be looking forward to making many more of these 3 different types of QSOs with you in the future.


Congratulations Kurt!
Little did I know that when you called me yesterday for a Summit to Summit that you were actually on your 8th Goat qualification activation!
Thanks for the S2S G/LD-052 to HB/NE-003 :slight_smile:

And yet another S2S today! I’m glad I tried 30m, which doesn’t normally yield very much in Austria. Thanks for hanging in there: you were really weak on 40m and there was lots of QSB, and when people started sending their calls over you I just gave up. Your tone was a little weird on 40m, your RST should have been 217. Perhaps you’re getting some intermodulation on 40? Tone was fine on 30m.

tnx for the kinds messages; for Matt: sorry for the bad tone on my S2S attempt, I do not understand why… glad we made it eventually on 30 m . 73 kurt
