While I am visiting Norway for a NATO conference, I have the opportunity to activate Preikestolen, or “Pulpit Rock” on 16 June around 2000 local time (1900z). I’ll be operating as a CEPT station, so LA/N0PCL/P will be the callsign.
I’ll have the capability to operate SSB, CW, and FM from 80-2 meters, and 70 cm.
I’ll post an alert.
I do have one question: What are the 2M and 70cm FM calling frequencies for Norway/Europe? My understanding is that the frequencies are 145.5 FM, and 433.5 FM, respectively.
When operating, I think you are supposed to carry paper copies of;
Your FCC license
CEPT agreement that grants you the operating privilege in Norway
Your US passport.
I snuck out before breakfast to operate outside Oslo a few years back. Picked the worst time as it seemed to be in the middle of a solar disturbance and it took what seemed like ages to get my 4 Qs before scurrying back to the hotel.
When I did Norway, I went with their AM on the first peak. He prepared by checking with Post & Telegraph… nothing special needed, but I did carry my license. Seems a good idea to take a copy of the CEPT rules, as you never know when a local policeman may stop by.
