Robert HB9OME is a SOTA Mountain Goat now

Dear All

Recently, another Swiss SOTA mountain radio operator has reached the Goat dignity: Robert, HB9OME. Robert is a friendly guy and operates almost exclusively in the canton of Berne HB/BE, which offers all altitudes and a wide variety from simple hills to high mountains. His first activation took place in autumn 2013. For the Goat Activation he was on Mt. Stanserhorn near Lucerne, HB/NW-015, one of the most popular public summits in Central Switzerland.

Many more summits are waiting for you, Robert. Congratulations on your great success and enjoy your next adventures!

Congratulations on the 1st MG, Robert (and xyl)!
Who knows, maybe we’ll see each other again unplanned, at a nice HB/BE summit, hi.

Congratulations Robert on achieving Mountain Goat.

Congrats on your Mountain Goat, Robert. Stanserhorn is a great place for catching a goat, got mine there as well a year ago :slight_smile:

Herzlichen Glückwunsch auch von mir. :sweat_smile:

Thank you for your feedback and all the good wishes.
In the early years of my SOTA activity, the MG goal seemed unattainable to me. Over time, my prospects have improved. Today I am happy that one of my mountain goats is now grazing in the herd. My thanks go to all chasers and activators who supported me in many QSO’s. I really appreciate being part of the big SOTA family. I now know the names of many of your callsigns. However, this does not always work because I keep my log on paper and without electronic support on the mountain.
With one exception I did all activations on Swiss mountains. I mostly travel alone on weekdays. Sometimes my wife, a brother or a radio colleague is with me. I really enjoy the combination of mountain hiking and amateur radio. We have many beautiful mountains in Switzerland, but many require more than I can afford as a senior. However, there are many options open to me.

So I hope that I can continue to be active and that we will soon hear each other again on the same frequency. I’m looking forward to further QSO’s.
