Today I activated both Kirnberg (DL/AM-177) and Ammerleite (DL/AM-178). I have to say I was bowled over by the number of chasers and their patience and persistence.
The pile-up was very impressive on Ammerleite where I managed to work 52 chasers in 30 minutes but I do know I missed a few - to those chasers I apologise - it really was a wall of noise - as witnessed by a passing local bicyclist who turned out to be a HAM - he had heard of SOTA but was blown away by the pile-up! I noted his call down but I must have got it wrong unfortunately. Perhaps I’ll meet him again on another summit?
Ammerleite was impressive today I would have been happy with the 25 contacts on Kirnberg which took 13 minutes, but the 52 contacts from Ammerleite was a surprise.
So much for “bad” conditions HI.
I will be posting full reports with pictures on my blog (dd5lp.com) in the next few days.
