After my post about Motta da Sett (HB/GR-275) I’ve got a message from Roby, IW2OBX. In the end we met in 2019 for a joint SOTA activation of Roccabella (HB/GR-269). We three (Rob with his SOTA dog Zac and I) started on 1950 m asl for a walk over 4 km (one way) and with an ascend of about 780 m.
Roby and Zag on the way up
The summit is wide and flat, enough place for 4 or 5 station. So we had no problem working at the same time, Rob on 2m and 30m and I on 2m, 20m and 40m.

The weather was perfect, nobody else on the summit and the conditions were OK, a nice activation.

1000 m over village Bivio
After more then two hours we started our way back.
Thanks to Roby and Sac for there companionship and hope to meet again some days on a joint activation or on the bands.
