The warm weather was perfect for a double activation today. Aibelhöhe and Sauernkogel are nearby and quite easy for a double activation. When I got to the Aibelhöhe, I found the summit has undergone significant improvements. As well as a summit cross, there is now a table and chair:
Next to the table is what looks like a well:
This is, in fact, a drinks dispenser. When you turn the handle, a steel bucket comes out of the ground that is loaded with drinks (in summer). There is an honesty box, where you can pay, screwed onto the post. I almost regret today being a winter activation, it would be great to crack open a beer in summer. The antenna can be set up on the fence behind the cross:
If there is a better SOTA summit than this, I’m yet to find it. To cap it all off, I worked Japan at lunchtime from the Sauernkogel.
