After been away from radio for a few months I’ll be back in August.
I pretend to activate Puig Major in Mallorca, Balearic Islands, during my holidays, but, regarding my research about the summit i’m a little confused right now. It seems to the summit is a military base with a radar station and the access is conditioned to an authorization.
First question is, how to get that authorization? I can’t find any e-mail to ask for it.
Second question is if is possible to get close the summit by car, cause measuring the distance in Google map is something like 14Km, for each side. So a quite long walk, in the Mediterranean summer .
Third question is about flying with the equipment. So I pretend to carry on plane my FT-897, and a Lead Gel battery in an aluminum case, in hand baggage, and my Magnetic Loop and the dipole in the dispatched baggage. Is it a problem? I already serch for tis, and I find a lot of opinions, but none regarding Lead acid batteries. Also, concerning the security, a “lot of wires” and “strange things” for non Ham, could arm the security guys?
Any information, or comments are welcome.
