My first activation in EA-land

It was pure fun and joy for me to activate my first Summit in EA-land. The chosen Summit was: EA5/AT-102, a one pointer.

Propagation had taken a dive the last few days, as the Sun was spotless and the Flux had plummeted to 77. Thankfully the Geomagnetic Field was very quiet as the K index was 1 during the activation.

35 Q´s were logged as far away as ZL-land, with a true 579 signal. Magic. You never know who´s going to give you a call, no matter the propagation…

Equipment was an Icom IC-705 and a linked Dipole for 20 30 and 40.

Thank you very much to all who gave me a call, and I´m looking forward to activate another Summit in EA5 shortly.

73´s and Christmas Greetings.

Hi Siggi,
it was a pleasure to have an S2S with you. The conditions weren’t great and I had to ask for your unusual call several times.
The same thing happened to me with Bill, G4OBK. Bill, nice that we had an S2S again.

Have fun in Spain, Siggi
