Hey Don, tu and also for the QSOs on my last summits. If I look at the time stamps, you must have posted it in real time. :muscle:

Some quick shots from Thu/Fr while we did some SOTA in the in the northern Black Forest region. We started on Hohloh DM/BW-054 984m. The next day we went to Hornisgrinde DM/BW-019 1163m. After those 2 I had 994 SOTA Points, only 6 points (thougt 4 but that was wrong…) short of the so hard wanted iceblock trophy. :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: We then drove one hour further south to the Brandenkopf 945m DM/BW-067. I was not prepared for this (battery-wise) and we hoped that somehow 4 QSOs would come into the log. It became then nevertheless even 10 QSO, until the device switched off from the low voltage. I will order the award right away and apply for the trophy. Now I am SOTA “Mountain Goat”. After 177 SOTA activations in 7 countries in 5.5 years.

Thank you, Michael. :slight_smile: You are my #1 S2S and also my #1 top activator.

Strange. :muscle: :muscle: :muscle:
HB9MKV calls me often while I am in DM/BW. Mostly on 2m. “Only” 16 times in the log.

True. That all would not be possible without them. Also big, big tu from me.
