Some information about the Mont Blanc expedition
The team is training daily.
If the weather is OK, they will try to reach the summit on 08/24.
They will sleep in the Goûter hut; not a long night since they will leave at 3 o’clock.
They expect to be on the top of Europe at 0900 / 1000 local time.
They will transmit on 40m first (unknown mode for now) until 1200.
I guess everyone is aware of the difficulty and that everyone will respect the normal rules of traffic.
