First "Sota Mountain Goat" from DM/RP

I am proud to tell you today that I reached my 1000 points in the Sota activator score on the last Sunday (05.09.2010).

Last Sunday my brother (SWL) and I were on DM/RP-022 (Aremberg).
First time there, nice summit, pure nature. :wink:

The contest on 2 meters brought many stations into the log. So it was not necessary to take out the shortwave antenna.

Now it is high time to order the Trophy.
Thanks for all loyal point-suppliers who made it possible.

Meet you at the summits or see you on band for the next 1000 points! :lol:

Congratulations, Jürg!
There must have been some confusion, since everybody expected you to give not your SOTA reference but exact WW QTH locator plus serial numbers in the IARU Region-1 VHF Contest…
Shame on me that I didn’t even give it a try. :frowning: Even though I am VHF fan, I didn’t even turn on my IC-910, but I did not want to have useless excitement because of the 1-200 kHz wide splatter from Mr. QRM (HA5KDQ operated by HA5IW from HA/KM-021)…
Sorry that you did not erect your HF antenna, so we did not make a QSO…
Well, Jürg, up to the next 1000 and hope to meet you many times! :slight_smile:

Eine wirklich tolle Leistung von Dir.

Vy73 und alles Gute

Hi, Joska!
Thanks for your reply and the congrads.
I told the contest-crews my sota reference, they had no chance to ignore it, hi. Some were perhaps confused when I told “You are 59-009 (or so) in JO30JK, that’s Sota DM/RP-022”…

With the German DO-license are only some HF bands allowed (160m/80m/15m/10m)and 2m/70cm/10 GHz. On 10m I had a short qso to HA during my last holiday, let’s have a look, yes HA7UG when I was on DM/BW-014.

For sota I use the Yaesu FT-857 for HF, about 50 Watts out in a wire antenna.
Power source: a “heavey weight” 17 AH battery (6kg).
I prefer SSB, my CW is too bad, hi.

Hope to catch you soon on qrg…
73 Jörg, do1djj

Well done Joerg. It’s a long journey to 1000 points!



In reply to DO1DJJ:

Herzlichen Glückwunsch zu der ersten DM/RP Bergziege, Jörg!

Ich wünsche Dir weiterhin viel Spaß beim Bergfunken und hoffe, Dich bald noch einmal im QSO zu treffen.

Herzlichen Glückwunsch.

Bei mir waren die ersten 1000 Punkte schnell erreicht. Jetzt ist es nicht mehr so einfach. Hier gab es früher über 300 SOTA Berge. Jetzt sind noch 50 übrig.
Demzufolge ist auch auf 2m nix mehr los hier.

Ich war heute auf einem GMA-Gipfel vor meinem Haus. Ganze 2QSOs. Echt schade.

Meine nächsten 100ß werden schwer.

Ich wünsche dir viel Erfolg und viel SPass bei SOTA.

LG Joerg
