HB9NBG + HB9FZC's 15 Summits between 26.December and 12.January

Hi all

Carine (HB9FZC) and I returned just yesterday from some beautiful SOTA-Days in the Swiss Alps. All-in-All we could activate 15 summits on very impressive SOTA-hikes with our snowshoes :sunglasses::sunglasses:

One Highlight was the activation of our first 3000m-SOTA-Summit in the Wintertime with snowshoes - have a look at our Video about the activation of our first 3000m-summit with the snowshoes

Another highlight was the DX between me (HB9NBG) and ZL1BYZ on 20m in SSB with the simple combination of KX2 and Telescopic-antenna AX1 - have another look to the SOTA-DX-Video

Following some impressions of our awesome SOTA-Days in the Swiss Alps :sunglasses::sunglasses:

Thanks very much for coming back to our calls to you all and hope to meet you soon on another SOTA-activation :grin::grin:

Super! No short skip, no qso with you, what a pity!
Well done!

Hi René & Carine
Very nice pictures, thank you for sharing.

Thanks for sharing this with us. We made some QSOs on 40m and seeing the pictures now I find quite amazing the quality of your signals with such small rig and antenna. It feels like you are using just a walky-talky.
Congratulations for all those activations and your DX into ZL with your “walky-talky” :wink:


Hi Rene and Caring,

Well done on the 15 summits, most impressive! Superb pictures. It is always a pleasure to have a SOTA QSO with you both.
