We will hold this year’s OE5 SOTA DAY on Saturday, September 8, 2018 in the Mühlviertel region of OE5. The plan is to activate summits in the area around Linz, Freistadt and Rohrbach. Please post your planned activations on SOTAwatch and try to spread out to different summits. It is of course also possible to activate a summit in the OK/JC region or in neighbouring Niederösterreich.
After the activations we will then gather at Gasthof Mader at around 15:00 local time. The meeting is open end.
4212 Neumarkt / Mühlkreis
Anybody interested in SOTA is welcome to join the fun!
but 60m is (still) not allowed in OE! In fact our government, the ministry and the public servants are currently planning to change the ham radio law in Austria … with several, massive drawbacks for us hams!
A request to all activators during OE5-SOTA-Day: Please do not run QSOs on the 2m FM calling channel (145.500 MHz). With the long list of alerts there will be a lot of traffic. Please just announce yourself on 145.500 and move to a working channel immediately!
My wife Franziska and myself arrived yesterday (4.9.2018) at the Gasthaus Mader in Lest and we will go on activating summits in this area! See you at the gathering on Saturday!
