Hello Om ! today, taking advantage of a trip to the Frosinone area, 100 km south of Rome, for my son Emilio’s athletics competition, I had time in the afternoon to do a Sota activation in this area. I chose a low mountain, easy to reach, to activate quickly and then return to Rome. The mountain is I / LZ-161, Rocca d’Arce, a rock of 600 meters. which is easily reached. On the top there is a castle and also a cemetery … very small, I naturally chose to place myself near the old castle.
I used my usual fishing rod which supports a wire antenna connected to a 9: 1 balun and then Tuner ATU-100 and Sdr RS 918 radio (mchf clone). I only used CW for this activation on 30 and 40 meters for a total of 16 with a nice S2S with HB9AFI / P.
Overall a very fast but very pleasant activation, the location is open to 360 degrees and the view of the Lazio mountains is fantastic. Thanks to all the Chasers and to the next activation!
