I` m happy to be able to officially join the SOTA community.
I just got my novice license HB3XTZ and activated 3 small mountains last weekend.
I grew up having amateur radio action all around me and in the past year i have been attending 42 activations, holding Antennas and writing the log. Then i finally decided to take the novice license exam.
During that time we also started to film some activations with a gopro, and what started out as a funny idea ended up in me editing videos twice a week! Befor we knew it we had our very own SOTA youtube channel that can be found when searching for HB9PIM on youtube.
Having a QSO looked so easy, but now since i have be doing it myself i know how hard it can be to talk fluently when beeing so nervous.
I have a lot of respect for all of you activators & chasers that handle these pile ups in such a clean and ordered way!
I have a lot to learn but it is a lot of fun to activate a summit!
All the best, greetings from the novice HB3XTZ, Sabrina
