Well I’m feeling all enthused after that very enjoyable trans-Atlantic event. I couldn’t find a current plan for an EU/VK S2S event (if there is one, perhaps it could be bumped to the top), so thought I’d raise the topic. I think previous Spring events have taken place around this time to the middle of May.
The only Saturday I can’t make in the next month is 21 May. I’ll also try to keep an eye on the alerts for any VK/ZL activators at a suitable time (~0600-0800UTC).
Linked to that, I’ve never spoken to anyone from Japan. A Japanese S2S would make my year
I don’t profess to be an expert but I’m happy to coordinate from here. Unless Mike @2E0YYY wishes to continue?
Having said that I’ve just made the ultimate newbie mistake and arrived on summit an hour early Can I have that hour in bed back please?
I’ve just updated the title to include a date. It hasn’t really been planned, just evolved. However, currently there are 5 Australian activators planning to be on summits from around 0500 UTC on Sunday 1 May. There are also 2 alerts from European activators. More would be very welcome.
Certainly, as the previously linked thread details, there has been quite a bit of success recently in getting contacts between EU and VK. The recent trans-Atlantic S2S event was also very popular so I’ll try and coordinate a date for the European autumn with a bit more notice.
Unfortunately here in the Bavarian Alpine regions, Saturday & Sunday look like being rather inclement, with long periods of rain, possible thunderstorms and high winds.
Of course, weather forecasts can be wrong and often are around here.
P.S. at the VK end, May 1st is of course “MAYHAM” the hamfest at Wyong 1 hr north of Sydney but VK2/HU-093 Mt Elliot is a drive-up SOTA summit close to that so, there could be some (possibly non-alerted) activity from there as people leave the event. Mayham is the largest gathering of Amateurs in Australia, in fact actually in the Southern Hemisphere!
