I just wanted to share how delighted I am to have made my first SOTA activation, which I have been planning for some time. I’m in Norway on holiday and had to walk around 12 miles in all to reach the nearest SOTA summit, but I was so pleased to have made the effort despite horrendous weather. I learned a great deal and look forward to becoming more active in the UK on my return! 73s LA/M0SVL
Congratulations on your first activation. You will find it gets addictive !
I’m impressed! Not only that you have your first SOTA activation in Norway, but in this weather.
Very IMPORTANT information:
Please note that the area you are in is at danger level 3 (out of 4) in relation to [flooding and landslides]((Flood and landslide forecast | Varsom.no). If you (still) choose to activate more peaks, please be careful!
Please note that the heavy rainfall has caused rivers to flood and a number of roads are closed in this part of the country, including both main roads between Oslo and Trondheim, see here for updated traffic information
Thanks Knut, I’m tracking the weather warnings.
Congratulations @M0SVL Rupert and well done on completing your first SOTA activation - be warned, it’s very addictive! also going that extra few miles in a different country really sets the standards! Sorry I missed to call into you, but hope when you’re back in the UK we can make some qso’s, maybe a few S2S
Many congratulations on your first activation and may it be the first of many.
