Good luck for Tuesday.

Many thank’s
The big problem for me is the wind. The forecast say 30-20 Km/h it’s the maximum at 4800 m. Last year many wind on the top :frowning:

Salut Jean-Seb!
Hopefully everything will go well.

I was wondering, what antenna do you carry to this mountain?
If the wind is that high it will be difficult to install it?
Good luck, tomorrow I will wake up early to try to catch you using my portable setup from a public park next to my apartment…

Merci Jean-Seb, ca sera un pleasure a lire!!

I woke up early and went to the park. Installed the antenna and switched on the radio at about 04:50.
I heard you calling once!! Then gave several calls but didn’t hear you anymore. Domage!
I stayed on frequency for about 20 minutes and the left the frequency. I will have to wait for next chance to catch Mont Blanc.

The same day, about midday I discovered on sotawatch that Stephan DM1LE was also in the summit transmitting CW a bit later. I didn’t know his plan!!

I wait to read your interesting story and see the pictures…
Glad you succeeded on this climb safely.
Meilleures salutations, 73 de Ignacio
