The Swiss canton Schaffhausen (HB/SH), located in northern part of the country, just nearby river Rhine, has only 1 SOTA summit at present. No wonder that Markus, HB9BRJ, had to try his luck outside. He chose to do so just on the other side of the border, in the beautiful regions of the Black Forest and the Swabian Alb, both day trips from his home. He started in 2009, and I think that there are very few SOTA fellows knowing so many places over there to set up a QRP rig and collect SOTA pearls like Markus.
Yesterday’s SOTA tour brought his account just over 3,000 points. Congratulations, Markus, on your third SOTA mountain goat! Enjoy your future SOTA day trips to the fir cone county. And maybe we can alter the L or the C of your circuits a bit to see you exploring more of this side of the country border?
Markus is a 100% CW operator, so I couldn’t congratulate on the bands. I’ll have to wait probably for the Ham Radio fair 2020 to enjoy a next beer with him on the ferry from Friedrichshafen to Romanshorn. I’m looking forward to it!
