Yep, but no reference… :wink:

In reply to F6ENO:

Hello Alain

Managed to contact J28JA/Jean-Claude on 40m last night but he was not signing /P so do not know if he was on the summit or not. Either way it was a new DXCC for me so well pleased.
Thank you for the information.

Best 73’s

worked Jean-Claude last night at 22:33utc, he was signing as J28JA/p,
so it seems he was on this summit.
So sad that Djibouti isn´t already joining the SOTA programm :wink:

Not only Djibouti, I worked several F stations from summits in SSB before SOTA program was introduced in France, also UN7QX from a summit in Kazakhstan, etc… etc…
Well, I think we are lucky to have some new countries coming in SOTA program nowadays… And even if not in SOTA ref, the contact is still a pleasure…
