as announced in the latest Sota News digest We’ve arrived in Malta where we’ll have part of our summer holidays.
Trip was fine and I could take my 817, batteries and all stuff without a problem.
As an starter, and after preparing all what I needed, I intend to start tomorrow wednesday with a Lighthouse activarion here in Valletta.
Although it’s not a pure Sota ítem I just want to highlight it as it will serve to see how propagation is going on and the performance of my gear here.
I’ll be glad to count with your calls in my log. I plan to activare since around 8 a.m. Utc for about 2 hours, most likely in 20m ssb & cw.
If all is fine I soon will activare the Malta Sota summit. Public ttansport is already identified to move near the summit in the SW of the island. Few info is available and I’ll try to add a GPS track for future activarion.
I’ll complete the mini qrp tour with a WFF if I can.
It’s a pity qrm levels in our apartment are as high as S8 making Sota chasing unfeasible!!
WX is always fine, bright but too warm abt 36C avg.
Hope to update my progress here, best 73. Ah, luckily free wifi is available home.
