Congratulations René HB9PIM on achieving Mountain Goat status in wintery conditions last week!
René is MG #39 in HB9, having taken only 1½ years to reach this goal. Of note is that he operates almost exclusively on 2m, where it can be difficult to get 4 QSOs on some summits around here, especially on a weekday. Yet he always manages to do it somehow – probably owing to the fact that he usually lugs the “big stuff” (pole, HB9CV antenna, high power radio) to the summits.
His daughter Sabrina @HB3XTZ often joins him and has recently got her amateur radio license. With both of them infected by the SOTA virus and well known for fearlessly venturing to the summits come rain or shine, I’m sure we can look forward to many more activations in the future!
