Sota & bicycle again . I/LZ-187, Monte Patulo 29/8/2021

Hello Om,
was so nice to use bike to make sota… so i made it again :slight_smile: Today the summit was I/LZ-187, Monte Patulo, 35 km from the center of Roma, the place it’s very strange… because at the top of the hill there is a little town… with no space of “natural” activaion of tree. So i but my longwire antenna (Rtx is Ft-817) in a parking in the top of the city …and also the top of the hill. Olny 12 qso in cw on 20/30/40 meter band… the place was not so nice, with a lot of qrm and noise. But the bike ride was fantastic, 4 hours in total, i will do it again !

You did a good effort and nice Strava results considering you carry you SOTA kit with you on the bike. Was it on back pack or do you use Panier Bags

Well done. It’s a nice combination, bicycle and radio,
