Good video Andre. Good memories for me, I have done F/PO-039 before SOTA and also the peaks around the Cirque du Gavarnie 066, 008, 021, 015 & 002 then through the Breche du Roland into EA land to Mont Perdu then down the Ordessa valley. - Happy times. (hope EA joins SOTA soon)

Hi Inky,

Ordessa is a very, very nice village, with good people, good meals and … good drinks…
Also good memories for me.

Hi Alain - all agreed about Ordessa (& Torla).
Vultures & marmots every where you look.

In reply to F5UKL:

Thank you for the excellent videos Andre :slight_smile:

You had some excellent weather too! Much better than I have had on any of my activations HI!

I hope to work you soon.

Hello Steve
Thanks for your message. Yes It is a wonderful place to run mountains but They are difficult to work on SOTA because of the weight in rucksack.
Take a look at this website.

Mariano is a super hiker and his photos are beautiful. I meet him for the first time when I went to PO-008. I was really happy. Next year, if I’m in good condition, I’ll work PO-002. It is the second highest summit in Pyrenees.

I don’t understand why EA are not involved in SOTA. There are hundred Spanish hikers on mountains everyday. Wait and see!

All my best 73 to you and yours.

Hello Mark
Thanks for your post and comment.
Video was good but the sound is not good, sometimes, because of wind.
I choose sunny days to work SOTA because I think that TX and antenna are expensive and I don’t want to destroy them under the rain. I don’t care about cold weather if sun is shinning.
Best 73 and gool luck in SOTA.
