Holiday in LX, OE and S5 by PA3FYG

Holiday in LX, OE and S5

We had a very nice holiday with successful SOTA activity.

We stayed a few days in LX, activating F,ON en 2*LX. We met LX1RA Arsène in the club station LX0RL by incidence looking for a summit.

After that we went to OE/OO to a camping site near the QTH of Christian OE5HCE. He already invited us for a visit and SOTA activation. We had a nice time with him and his yl Sandra. Activated 5*OE/OO in total. I suppose a lot of you looked at Christian’s super video already.

Last camping site was in S5, we activated 9 S5/KS summits. Had nice contacts with locals, Marian S56IIA who saw me walking on a summit with my antenna, Andrey S51MO at the S50C club station, and at last Miro S52ON, Negro S55KM and his qrp Monica S55NM ( 12 y only !!). The visited us at the camping site. Monica was the leader of the local net also !

The last days our friends Sake PA0SKP and his xyl Els camped also on our S5 camping. I think I gave him a SOTA infection !!! He has 2 mtr FM porto only.

Outside the SOTA activations we enjoyed the vacation also hi hi.

We like to thank everybody for the hospitality, that was a nice bonus in our successful holiday.

In reply to PA3FYG:

Hello Hans,

it was always a big pleasure to meet you from the summits.
fine to know you’re not in a hurry and take time for the QSOs.
The skip to S5 was much better than to OE for me.

Many thanks for the fine QSOs and 9 new summits.

Veel groeten naar Nederland en alle goede.

In reply to PA3FYG:
Hello dear José and hello Hans!

For my yl Sandra and me was your trip to OE5 magnificent. We had
also much fun with you and we are happy if you visit us again in
next few years. Perhaps we come once to PA also soon. We let you
know it, if we start to plan.

Stay tuned :wink: and we hear us on the next summit!
