On Saturday Jan 13, 2018, the Swiss SOTA Group HB9SOTA will conduct its annual winter outing. We will have a group activation of HB/AI-008 Faehnerenspitz (which at 1506 meters qualifies for the winter bonus). This was originally planned as a snowshoe tour, but there is virtually no snow in the Appenzell Region at 1500 meters – but we will nonetheless gather for an afternoon of radio fun and afterwards having a beer or two in a nearby village.
We would also like to invite any SOTA activators from other associations to join us – the more the merrier! Most of us should have reached the summit by noon local time.
We will be on the air from mid morning until mid or late afternoon. Keep a watch on the alerts.
Because there will be so many activators on the air, there can easily be confusion – so it is important for chasers to be sure with which station they are having a QSO.
As in the past for such group activations, please help us make certain that every activator gets the required 4 QSOs. If you hear someone calling CQ several times with no response, please jump in and help him/her out.
We look forward to hearing from many of you!
on behalf of HB9SOTA
