Chris HB9CYV is a SOTA Mountain Goat now

Dear all

The French Loire Valley with its many castles is a wonderful setting to do SOTA there. Chris, HB9CYV, is currently in this beautiful region and has now reached Mountain Goat status. Congratulations Chris on your great success, always nice to meet you for an S2S QSO or a call from your hut! I think it’s great that even today radio amateurs still aim for this long term goal and achieve it.

Chris is one of the few SOTA participants I have met on the way to a summit. You can still recognize him by the mast on his backpack, and we had a nice chat. Keep your fire, Chris, and continue to enjoy SOTA! Maybe I’ll hear you today at the Swiss Mountain Activity Weekend?

I still remember the thrill of getting an S2S with you last year when I was in Iceland. I hope that we will QSO again some day.
