Dear Whoever it is I am supposed to talk to!
I thought I might post here, for lack of knowing what else to do, and because I need advice. Perhaps an email to the M.T. would be more appropriate, but as it is not a contentious issue, I felt it safe to raise it here and hopefully gain said advice!
Tomorrow (04 Sept) I am going to attempt a HF activation of the SOTA summit I live on the side of in Southern France. It is known locally as both Mont Lozére and (more precisely) as Sommet de Finiels. However, this is where the confusion lies - it is listed in the databse as both F/MC-195 Mont Lozére and F/MC-196 Sommet de Finiels. Does not compute! Further investigation on the SOTA F website leads me to a 404 error for the page pertaining to department 48 (where the summit is located). Also I speak next to no French, certainly not enough to raise it with anyone within SOTA F. Thus my post here.
It has already been activated (almost excactly a year ago) as '196 - so my question is can I activate is as '195 as a unique or not? I’m confused!
I will be active on 20m and 40m using the 817, though I do not fancy my chances among the All Asian DX Contest At least its a good walk!
