I have planned to do my first “official” SOTA activation in Ireland tomorrow. (I have been doing some operations from hills, but not calling as an activator)
I have planned to begin with IE-005 Kippure at approx. midday, and then continue onto IE-007 Djouce about 5Km from Kippure, depending on conditions on Kippure, but no later than 2PM.
I’d appreciate if some kind chasers would keep an ear out for me calling EI8FDB.
I will be activating with voice only. Regarding bands, I would like some advice on that.
I am still waiting for my 5MHz application. So I will be on the “traditional” bands.
Just so I have it correct: each QSO, on each band is one QSO?
What is the status of a QSO on another band, with the same operator?
My equipment will be an FT-817 (max 5W), multiband dipole, and a SLAB battery, so nothing too high-powered.
Is it beneficial to post an alert?
Any advice most welcome!
thanks and 73,
