It’s my birthday today and I’m going to celebrate it with a SOTA activation on 60m on the frequency 5354 KHz. This will be my very first activation on 60m band and the operating frequency will be 5354 KHz not only because it’s the common frequency for WRC15 and the UK channels but also because 53 and 54 have a special meanning in this celebration. Today, I end being 53 years old and start being 54. 53–>54, 5354 KHz
I’m not sure yet I’ll be able to make it today, but in case I can’t, it will surely be tomorrow.
An alert will be raised as soon as I know it for sure.
Thanks very much.
I finally couldn’t activate today, but I’ll hopefully make it tomorrow.
I need to find some time to prepare the expedition (GPS track, etc)
I hope to be able to raise an alert before the end of the day.
As announced, I will activate on 60m 5354 KHz hopefully but not only. I’ll surely work 30m and perhaps 40, 20… depending on the available time, as I’d like to be back home in time for lunch with my family.
Hope to copy you all tomorrow from EA2/NV-051.
Guru, nice idea!
5354.0 kHz is on the lower edge of a UK 60m sub-band so no problem to work you USB from here on your birthday. But you will have to age a few months more (say 5354.2 kHz) before we can work you on CW.
At my age I’m already ‘higher frequency’ than the top end of 60m band.
