Hello everyone!

Thank you again for the congratulations :+1:
And of course the one or other QSO today.

After a hot shower, dinner and transfering the paper logs it is official :grinning:

@OE5REO: Thank you Martin for posting it here on the reflector and of course many QSO and in person meetings at the SOTA day. Looking forward to September for the next one.

@OE5YYN: Thank you Sylvia. QSO #4 in the log for MG. Perfect timing and an honor having the OE AM handing over the trophy so to say :grin:
Thanks for all the support and activities. Big thanks of course also to Peter @OE5AUL

Btw. Sylvia, Peter and Martin were chasing me at my very first activation three years ago. I was super nervous calling CQ SOTA the very first time. Now I think I got the hang of it :laughing:

@EA2BD: Thank you Ignacio. I will continue to enjoy mountains and radio :sunglasses:

@DL6GCA: Armin, thanks for the song. That never happend to me :blush:

@OE5EEP: Heinz, there are some easy ones in my log too. Thanks a lot for the nice words!

@HB9DIZ: Markus dir auch vielen Dank. Hoffe es klappt mal mit einem S2S oder nächstes Jahr in Friedrichhafen. Muss mal sehen ob ich diesmal genug Material für ein Video habe. Ev wird es nur ein Bildreport.

@K6HPX: Sure everything is possible. It there already a date? I need to test my new HF amp.

@G0RQL: Don, always a pleasure to have you in my log.

I can’t list everyone in one answer hi
Thanks to everyone. It is just so much fun being part of the SOTA community. Looking forward to more activations and outdoor adventures.
And of course the one of other video report on YouTube.
