Congratulations Patrick. No luck so far working him while he’s been in EU. FYI, Patrick will have some nice hardware waiting for him when he gets home. He won the First Place trophy in this year’s North Carolina QSO Party for the Expedition/In State/QRP category. Well done.

Congratulations Pat on making Mountain Goat status. You’re in a very elite group now. Always look forward to working you when I see you will be out on a summit. Unfortunately band conditions have been poor here and I’ve not heard you yet from DL land. Have a fun trip.

Thanks for all the congratulations, QSOs and most of all for SOTA. Summits on the Air has gotten me off my duff and back into the great outdoors. Mountain Goat is just a stop on the journey and the trail is always calling me to the next summit.

I had a great summit and weather for the big activation, but I am sorry I wasn’t able to share it with all the faithful chasers on the other side of the pond. But, I have gotten to know a lot of the ‘usual suspects’ over here while on vacation in Germany.

Till the next summit, 73 de pat - KI4SVM

Congratulations Pat,well done on the Mountain Goat.Conditions certainly didn’t favor me during your trip to Germany had a real duff time over those days on 20/40mtrs from the West Country.

One of the coolest aspects of SOTA for me has been to share some of my favorite mountain tops with activators from other areas. I am fortunate to have a lot of great summits within a couple of hours drive from my QTH (with plenty of memories from my misspent youth). As much as I enjoy spending a day in the woods not seeing a single other person, sharing the trail with a fellow activator and swapping stories is great fun as well. The southeast US is a great SOTA destination year-round and I encourage anyone to drop by for a visit.
