Having found a cheap routing into Korea via Japan that allows me to indulge in some SOTA prior to a work trip, I’ll be activating two JA associations on Friday and Saturday, and following it up with HL on Sunday.
I’ve posted alerts for Japan, where I’ll be activating as JI1GBE, and for Seoul where I’m licensed as HL1ZIH. I’m particularly looking for DX on Friday and Sunday; I suspect the Saturday activation will be too tight for HF antennas, so will be 6m/2m/70cm only. VOACAP suggests NA and EU might be possible on 20m and 17m CW and I will pack the key.
For any of the JA folks around on the Friday evening, we’ll be having a SOTA dinner in Akihabara - Toru has the details!
Looking forward to working as many folks as possible, and activating associations 16 and 17 if all goes to plan!
