Sota f/pe-145

I’m really sorry but I had no network to write that SOTA F/PE-145 was canceled.
I was late at the start of the hike and at 1000z I was at 1500m from summit. Too long way and more than 1 hour to reach the summit. In winter, daylight is shorter than in summer and I had to think to the way back.
Then I worked only FFF.
Heavy rucksack with snow shoes is not easy.
Best 73 and sure I’ll be back in spring or summer.

Hello Andre, I wouldn’t worry about chasers like me and others. It is good of you to send the post but the main thing is to get back safely or in your words “think to the way back” :wink:

Best wishes
73

Hello Mike
Thanks for your kind words.
Next time I’ll sleep in a shelter then I’ll be near the summit, the day after.
Best 73
