f6eno f/am-340 & f/am-330

I spent the last week in Puy St Vincent, dpt 05, in the “Massif des Ecrins”.
So, I planed to activate some F/AM summits.
On friday 27th March, I went to F/AM-340, starting at abt 1400m, I reached the summit (2040m) 3 hours later. Usualy, during summer, I climb this summit in 1 hour and half, but the snow was fresh and deap, so the ascent was very difficult for me. Fortunately, the WX was very nice.
I made 44 QSO on 40m CW.
Here is the video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n0vPp5pz620

On saturday 28th, I was on F/AM-340, la “Tête d’Oreac”.
Nobody when climbing, nobody on the summit… I was a poor alone man !
I started calling at 11h20 UTC and found a huge pile up during 1 hour and half. 73 QSO one after the other on 40m CW, starting with F/SP7JYM/P on F/NO-025. Another S2S with S57XX/P, Jure on S5/RG-010. I missed F5IUZ/P on F/AM-451. May be Moïse was too close, in dead zone. A very big thank to DJ5AA, Al who tryed to help me for this QSO. And an other thank you to all chasers keeping quiet when I was calling Moïse… It was very nice (and rare… !)

Best 73 to all

Again a prima video Alain … so as I can see and hear, I must go back study on the CW mode. Until the next video.

Hello Luc,
High speed or low speed CW, it’s always a pleasure… hi !

PS: I just read that you broke your index finger… not easy for CW…

In reply to F6ENO:

Bravo pour un autre excellent film Alain!
Une très belle vue et une activation de haute volée (sans casque!).

Hello Alain,
I liked making this summit with you one summer. The winter, it’s an other thing and that tempts me.
In the ear, we re-know the influence of TS7C: that ruffles the hair! (in french: “ça décoiffe !”) HI! But maybe a little QRQ for some.
Remark, you are more QRS than certain —NO. (NO as you), but of which we have never “seen” its traffic on its summits. Hi!
( I am again going to be made friends!!! Hi! Hi! Hi!)
73 QRO,
