On a very short notice I got the chance to join a group of non-hams on a little trip to Lauhanvuori, OH/JS-032. Before we left, I put up a quick alert.
Unfortunately on our arrival it was raining very hard and we had to wait for quite some time before we could reach the top. I finally managed to put up my dipole over two hours after my ETA of 1100 UTC. I called CQ SOTA quite a few times for about 30 minutes, but I only managed to make one contact with Horst, DK5TM. At that point the temperature was down to 6 C and I was so cold that I had to give up.
So, my apologies to anyone who might have been listening to me at 1100 UTC. I’m sure I’ll try this hill again next summer, on a better weather!
