DM/BW-078 & DM/BW-484 activations today

Despite the fact that on a couple of occasions my spot said BM-484 not BW-484, I was indeed on DM/BW-484. The problem came when rushing to send s spot in the pouring rain - the rain on the Smartphone’s screen keyboard made it VERY difficult (and annoying) to use!

Sorry for any confusion.

Thanks for letting us all know.
We ted to forget how conditions can be multiplied by many a fold by being at a much more exposed point. When one found out, when went up kit hill, small wind at home, bigger by X3 when got there. Now add win chill and snow .

Thanks for the first summit
Second summit, oh well another day, safety first as always


Hi Karl, For clarification, I did activate both summits. DM/BW-078 Römerstein and DM/BW-484 Bussen. I would have liked to have been at the second one earlier and may have then managed an S2S into W4V with Eric but as I got lost en-route I arrived late, got some bad weather and left after only 10 contacts.
