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.
