FL/VO Tour from 24/6 till 29/6.

Yes we can go. I’m planning to go to La Bresse for 5 nights. My rough plan is to activate:
On my way to La Bresse LX/LX-001 which is also LXFF-0002.
Then the first day 25/6:
FL/VO-088 FL/VO-030 FL/VO-009

Second day 26/6:
FL/VO-011 FL/VO-173 FL/VO-002 FL/VO-015

Third day 27/6:
FL/VO-010 FL/VO-177 maybe FL/VO-168 FL/VO-006

Fourth day 28/6:
FL/VO-012 FL/VO-176 FL/VO-177

On the way back home 29/6:
FL/VO-023 FL/VO-090 FL/VO-092

Of course everything depends on traffic, weather and other general conditions. So this planning can change.
I will use KX3, home-made EFHW 40/30/20, with 10 meter mast and only CW.
Hope to work you.

Hi Tonnie.

When I read about La Bresse, I remembered the Muddy Run (A trail run with obstacles and some strange people taking part - including me :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:). I have taken part in it twice. A beautiful area.

Wish you much success and fun with the activations. Maybe we will hear us in a qso :+1:

That’s an impressive list. You must be fit! :slight_smile: I hope you have good weather. I might be on G/DC-001 on 27/6 and will look for your spot. QRS please as I’m a CW beginner. :slight_smile:

Hey Tonnie

I was also at the campsite in La Bresse for 7 days in my early SOTA days (sept/oct 2018) and activated 20 summits in that time. … and since then I have been active there for days at a time.
It would be nice to reach these summits as a chaser now. Then I will keep an eye on your alerts and hope to get some complets.

I hope the weather is good and you have a nice time.

Yes…. 4 summits a day …Sota is not just gaining points … can you really appreciate the climbing and the nice moments of this beautyfull mountains ???
I do hope….

Hallo Jean Claude

I don’t live far from the Vosges and have already done a few hikes here… Long before I came back to amateur radio through SOTA. I had hiked many summits without a radio.

But especially through SOTA I have seen beautiful places that I might never have come to otherwise. Also in the Vosges.

Especially when the landscape and the trail are beautiful, the activation sometimes is a minor matter.

Have a good time Tonnie. We may meet there during weekend.

Hello Tonnie

If it would be possible for you… it would be great if you could write in the alert when you are planning which summit.

Today I activated three summits.
Total QSO’s 112. Amazing what a lot of chasers today. That’s the reason I only activated three summits.
Also some S2S. Worked 40/30/20/17 meters.

Thanks all chasers.

Cu tomorrow.


Thanks TONNIE for 2 x s2s from F/AM-347.
A réal pleasure

Thanks Roger. A big pile-up, but we made the S2S.
Goodluck. I’m now on my way to the next summit.
