On Sunday August 14, the Swiss SOTA Group HB9SOTA will be organizing a club activation of Ortstock HB/GL-016. There will be at least six of us (HB9BIN HB9DST HB9CBR HB9AFH HB9EDU HB9BQB) on the summit. We are spending Saturday night at an alpine hut (Berggasthaus Glattalp), and our hike to the summit Sunday morning will take between 3 and 3.5 hours.
I expect that the first ops will get on the air somewhere between 09:00 to 10:00 UTC. If propagation is poor, we might struggle to have enough QSOs for everyone to qualify the summit. Thus, even if you work one of us and get points for the summit, please monitor the SOTA frequencies and if you hear that another op is struggling to get the necessary contacts, please make a QSO with him, too.
Looking forward to working many of you.
Paul HB9DST, VP of HB9SOTA
