Failed avtivation of Barre des Ecrins 4102mm F/AM-

In start of august i spend some time for holidays in Ailefroide, south French alps. In 7th of august i reach the summit of 4102m high Barre des Ecrins. I make several cq-calls on very strong wind and low temperatures on the top. There was nobody on 2m FM. I spend about 10min calling on the top.
We hawe perfect experience there but with no activation!

Next day when arrived home i was on Dovška baba S5/KA-011. This time with 18 QSO-s on 2m and 70cm.

You can see some pictures from my trip and report (in Slovenian language) here: http://forum.hamradio.si/viewtopic.php?f=48&t=9936

73 and good luck on mountains S57ORG, Marko

In reply to S57ORG:
Hello Marko,

Congratulations for climbing the ‘Barre’ ! realy a great challenge.
10 years ago, I went to the ‘Dôme’, a so nice ascent

Sorry abt the QSOs… rather difficult on 2m in these region.
