It was pure fun and joy to activate my first Summit in 2021. The weather was perfect, no wind and temp 5°C ( 41 F).
Lurking here in the background, covered in fog, is the Summit, 338 meters (1108 feet)
The ascent is pretty steep, you reach the top in about an hour and a half.
Iceland is a land of extremes. We have Glaciers, active Volcanoes, Geothermal Heat, and Geysers.
The whole of Iceland was covered by thick ice during the Ice age, and this mountain, Helgafell, formed during an eruption under the Glacier.
It is made of Tuff, which is a type of rock made of volcanic ash ejected from a vent during a volcanic eruption.
Following ejection and deposition, the ash is lithified into a solid rock.
I used my MTR3b rig (5w), and an Inv V antenna to make 40 QSO´s. Big thanks to all the Chasers, and see you soon on another SOTA Activation.
