HB9AFI Kurt 5k activator points!

I just noticed that this past week Kurt HB9AFI broke through the 5000 activator points barrier – certainly an accomplishment worth mentioning! He’s clearly the top gun in HB9-land, and he currently ranks #7 internationally. His first SOTA activation was on August 5, 2005, so it took him just over 9 years to accomplish this.

Thanks, Kurt, for all the S2S QSOs we’ve had, and congratulations!


Congratulations Kurt on achieving 5k activator points!
I know that you are deeply grateful that your legs did carry you up to more than 1’000 summits (645 unique summits) so far.
Best wishes and take care!

…and the Oscar for excellent SOTA-achievement and top ham-spirit goes to HB9AFI.
May your legs will bring you up to many more summits to enjoy the view
and the pile-up´s on the wonderful mountains dear Kurt!
Congratulations and cu on the air.

Worked Kurt yesterday S2S, from OZ/OZ-012, he was F/HB9AFI/P from F/AB-485. I’m just getting started on SOTA, having activated 6 summits so far - this is so cool! NO noise, almost always pileups, and beautiful nature! Being a mountain guide and loving the outdoors, this seems to be the best af everything :slight_smile:

Cheers, 73
