Thanks to those who listened me this earlier this morning on 40m and 30m on Hünenburg DM/NW-062 - due to the condx, it wasn’t to be. The 4 stations eventually worked were not SOTA participants, so it is unlikely they will read this message
EW8CP and LY2RJ responded to a CQ on 7032 and EW8CP and YT7M were worked by answering their CQ calls. I started calling CQ at 0453z and got my 4th QSO at 0540z.
20m at 0500-0540z was devoid of signals on DMNW-062. Repeated CQ calls with SOTAWatch spots on 10119 and 7118 produced nothing. I was running the usual 10 watts from a KX2 to a link dipole.
This was the hardest summit to qualify for me in 12 years of participation as an activator! A combination of solar condx and an early morning I believe… I set up at dawn in mist on the wooded summit.
I am next going to activate Piesberg DM/NS-108 at around 0900z, which will be the last one of my tour.
