Members: RA9WPV, RX9WT.
Equipment: New SW2017-mini (up to 20 W), folded GP to 14 MHz.
Location: Ridge of Nary on southern Urals. Not Kary - it is mistake!
The Nary ridge is one of the most picturesque in the southern Urals.
And, perhaps, one of the most difficult and difficult to access.
Our plans were to visit two summits: R9U/SO-021 (Bet Nary) and R9U/SO-011 (Nary).
And as reserve - R9U/SO-063 (also not Kary))
There are only taiga and mountains around us.
I find it difficult to find the words to convey this amazing atmosphere. Just watch.
Climbing the rocks, looping through the labyrinths of stones, and just poking through the windbreak, we finally approached the first - R9U/SO-021.
Taking only the equipment, we hurried to the top.
Quickly installed the antenna, as the weather began to deteriorate.
Radio Ether is filled with lightning discharges. It is very difficult to receive signals by QRN. in during QSO with DL1FU, I received a sensitive electric shock from the CW key.
Quickly removed the radio, lowered the antenna and began to descend to the backpacks left at the top.
After waiting for a heavy rain and a thunderstorm in the tent, we again climbed to the top.
Visibility has improved, thunderstorm clouds have gone to the northeast. The antenna was lifted back, and - quickly to the 14 MHz band, where the chasers are waiting us. QRN remained, but it was already safe to work on the air. While I was working in a small pileup), Alex took pictures of wonderful views from the top.
After 40 QSO I finished the work on the air and we turned off the position.
Descended on simple rocks.
Spent the night in our little camp under the summit.
We still had two more days and a R9U/SO-011 at 10 kilometers to the north, but the weather forced us to abandon this plan.
It was raining all night, and by the morning all the mountains were covered with fog.
In such conditions, it was impossible to walk along the ridge and we decided to go down …
Only one summit. Three amazing days. Two…
