F/MC-159 Notre Dame de Buenne 03/08/2021
Monday was on this easy one 1 pointer, the region, Aveyron, is beautiful the weather was fine Temp was about 20°C a little cooler than at home 30°C.
I started my activation a little earlier than expected.
Very pretty chapel on the summit
Installation of the shack on a camping table, no mast needed there were tall pines for the antenna !
All bands were open but no rush on my spots, also I called especially in SSB for the chasers who do not practice the CW and curiously they did not come
Here my little log :
I managed to contact 8 s2s, but it was very hard … 5w wire antenna VS 100w minimum + large antennas well clear … the count is quickly done you can’t break a pileup
I was only chased by one activator @HB9BCB/P Heinz , after I spotted “please s2s priority ”, yet I have heard and called many !
Please don’t put a WFF reference on your spot or it becomes mission impossible !
All in all a good time spent, especially as the weather for the next few days is not good at all. I don’t think I’ll be QRV tomorrow, maybe Thursday or Friday, stay tuned
After the effort, the comfort
Once back at our gite, a cocktail with a local liqueur, called Le Birlou, with a beer. Do not abuse !
Thanks to all hunters and sorry for those I haven’t heard.
