A sunny day on OE/OO-209 Hoher Nock - some impressions

Hello everyone,

Just sharing some impressions from todays hike to Hoher Nock

Started a 7 o’clock local time from my hometown Linz, together with my colleague Alex, in dense fog that cleared up after getting closer to the pre-alp mountains in OE5.
Started in nice sunny weather although it was still cool. From about 1500 m up sections with about 10-15 cm of snow from the snowfalls 2-3 weeks ago needed to be crossed.

View southward to Warscheneck (OE/OO-006)

Near the ridge line that we followed to the summit the sun had softened the snow already and took extra endurace to continue.

After 3:25 h including breaks and adjusting our cloth layers several times finally reaching the summit.

With a great view to the Sengsengebirge traverse.

First setting up the J-pole for 2m:

Shame we didn’t hear you on 20m from OE/ST-354.
Thanks for the nice report!

Hello Sylvia,

It can’t work everytime with S2S :wink:
I hope the wx was fine in OE/ST as well?

73, Joe

It was quite windy down there but we managed 6 activations :grinning:
