Comments from Joe Public today on my SOTA Activation of Zugspitze:
“Is that radio out of your car?”
“I was in charge of six guys in the gulf war doing what your are doing”
(Said by an American tourist - I was using Morse at the time"
I find it is quite hard to respond when sending in Morse when people are talking to me and they are expecting a reply…so sorry to Chris ON6ZQ for the pregnant pause on 40m CW - you are in the log!
Forgot to mention I had a three DX contacts too today with AC1Z KA1R and K4DY, most welcome contacts on 20m CW.
I have the possibility of one more summit tomorrow if I can fit around the other members of the party’s plans.
