Dear Coen and Roberto and Ed
I went to operate from DM/BW-348 some years ago. I parked at a BBQ Platz and walked some way into the forest on a track to what I believed was within a few metres of the highest point.
The activation zone is large there as we know the rules permit operation within 25m of the highest point. It would therefore be possible for several activations to take place at the same time in different places in the woods on different bands on the “summit” without an operator knowing of the existence of the other operators being on the summit at the same time as they were. There would also be several places to park a vehicle inside or outside the activation zone.
Congratulations Roberto on a successful activation.
Coen - with more preparation you should be successful on your next attempt at SOTA.
If you had been able to access SOTAWatch via the RRT App, or SOTA Goat or even the SOTAWatch on your phone, you would have been able to self spot your frequency and also see that Roberto was operating in the vicinity.
Ed - sorry to see the transistor burned up again in the linear. Your mentoring Colin, M6BOY should get him interested in taking up SOTA back in the UK as a Foundation Licensee.

PS I like the look of the carved creature you located in the wood Roberto!
