S57XX/P Activations


It has been a while since my last activation. Here are three new reports (in Slovene language) with links to picture galleries.

S5/JA-035: http://forum.sota.si/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=2266

Logs will be uploaded shortly. I have to be sure, that database is working properly. That confusion about start date of new S5 ARM was just too much …

There is something during activation pileups, that disturbing me more and more. Some stations calling two, three or even more times. Stop doing this! Call me once then listen. If you can not here me, don’t call me. Do not call by the SPOT on SW, first listen to the band, if I am still on spotted frequency.

If pileup is tolerant, rate of QSO’s could be up to 4 per minute – that is my limit. Just one intolerant caller and this could drop to QSO per minute or even less.

Be sure, that I will not leave summit after only 4 QSO’s in my log! I want to work you all, but need some cooperation from your side. See you from next summit …

Sunday 20th was very nice day for hiking, but bands were not nice to activators. A lot of contest QRM an HF and VHF, without any answers on 30m. Result is one of less productive activations with just 30+ QSO’s in the log.

Osolnik, S5/CP-022: http://forum.sota.si/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=2334

My last activation on 28th of April 2011 was:

S5/TK-031 Skabrijel: http://forum.sota.si/viewtopic.php?f=16&t=2352

S5/BR-032 Gradisce: http://forum.sota.si/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=2359.

Because of rain, have to finish much earlier, than expected.

S5/KA-013 (Velika Golica) and OE/KT-117 (Kahlkogel) is basically one and the same summit. In fact, S5 SOTA summit is about 120m NW from OE summit and it is about 6m higher. Very nice day for hiking with soma strange propagations on bands add often HVY QSB. More you cand find here:


After two years again on Gabrska gora, S5/CP-017. I was better prepared on “April” weather, than on Gradisce two weeks ago. Some rain, some sunshine, a lot of mosquitos and a lot of fun.
