In reply to SM1TDE:
Thanks to you and all the others for QSOs especially those who made several of my 6 summits.
Apologies for early stops and occaisional deafness but there were some horrendous thundertorms in the area all week. On saturday (7th) we had taken 3.5 hours to reach Dicker Kopf (NS 087) having set out to NS088 and failed to get there due to paths blocked by trees! After only 25 mins of operating and about 29 QSOs had to hurry to safety! Met 6 fire engines going up whilst we were descending!
More news later and photos to be uploaded. I will try to load my logs into the database tonight.
Sorry to miss QSO with Matthias, I called on severaL 2M fm Channels with no result but worked a few DL stations on 2m SSB, best DX was Steinberg in N Harz to Nuremburg!!! Not bad for about 5W out to a 3ele yagi (good ol’ SOTA Beam, thanks Richard)
150 plus QSOs in log, could have made more but WX limited on at least 2 occasions. Visited Brocken (by train) but no QSOs due to Thunderstorm and not having walked up, would not have counted any way!
Best Summit by far
Achtermann Hohe. A real treat with stunning views and a pleasant walk in!
73 to all
