Lars did’nt chase since 30th of june 22.
i wrote Lars last week a email. i Have no Answer up to now 73 Michael
I spoke to Lars on the phone a few weeks ago. He’s fine.
It’s holiday time…
no contact on TG973 DMR
Thanks for your answers, we shall wait and see.
Had heard secondhand that Lars is taking a break from SOTA.
We do become a bit of a family, I miss hearing SA4BLM come out of my little radio.
When I enter the call signs as an activator, it often seems to me as if I perceiving the corresponding voice. The SA4BLM is always clearly modulated and understanable. I miss that voice!
I miss him a lot too. But I also understand that after so much dedication to Sota, he might turns his interest to other things.
so it is
There comes a time… I was pleased to be one of the last to work Lars from a summit. I hope he comes back to chasing after a rest. His last days log from QRZ.COM, 100% SOTA chasing is here:
Lars isn’t very active on this reflector, so I am not expecting an explanation why he has stopped any time soon.
I am very grateful to Lars for encouraging me to do a cw qso with him at every summit since a couple of years.
His calm manner, even when keying, was very motivating for me and dampened my excitement.
Without his support, it would certainly have taken a lot longer before I hit the key regularly.
I had an email exchange today with Lars. The summer is short in Sweden and he has some priority work to do outside. We will hear it after this break, no doubt. Thank you Lars for this reassuring news and we look forward to hearing from you!
I got at text message from him today. He is a human and enjoys summer and has a lot of other stuff to take care off, like his garden, house and family. So radio activity is put on hold.
I got the same Email.
Lars will com Back in a few Weeks
Is it still so Jaan ?
I guess I heard once Lars chasing somebody but I still not him in my logs for a long time
I think we should let the matter rest. Lars will come back if and when he is ready to, I’m sure. Whatever the reason is for him taking a break from SOTA Chasing is a matter for him.
My last contact was 22.October, OM/BB-052
