I will be on holiday in Costa Adeje in Tenerife from Tuesday 6th September to Tuesday 13th September. While on holiday over there me and my dad Tom M1EYP plan to do some early morning SOTA activations on the island and one whole days SOTA activating as well.
I am wondering if anyone has ever walked the the below SOTA summits, maybe even before they were SOTA summits and know of any good routes for these summits?
EA8/TF-003 Roque de la Grieta
EA8/TF-004 El Sombrero
EA8/TF-005 Montaña del Cedro
EA8/TF-006 Colorados de Chinoia
EA8/TF-007 Cruz de Gala
EA8/TF-010 Roque del Conde
EA8/TF-013 Montaña de la Atalaya
EA8/TF-014 Roque de Jama
EA8/TF-015 Roque Chiguel
EA8/TF-017 Montaña de Taco
We don’t plan to activate all the above SOTA summits, but if you can recommend any routes to us for any of these summits, it will help with our planning. We will probably be more likely to activation SOTA summits on the west of the island than those on the north east of the island.
I plan to activate these SOTA summits on 2m FM with HF SSB as back up and my dad will be activating on HF cw. I am wondering if anyone knows of the best calling frequency is on 2m FM to get contacts at the moment as I know there is no calling channel frequency over there? I am aware the there are some repeaters to try and get 2m FM contacts on simplex, but it would help if anyone knows of any simplex calling frequencies that I am likely to get contacts on?
I have emailed a few EA8 radio amateurs regarding all of the above, but not had any response, so wondering if anyone on here has any knowledge on this?
