SOTA F/PO-250 "Eltzarruzé" + VIDEO by F8DZY/P


Hi all, fantastic site today in Eltzarrutzé summit on Spanish border with a blue blue sky and good conditions. Climbing was hard but Thanks Klaus DF2GN for S2S QSO and every others (34 QSO CW on 30m & 40m).
I looked at the video, the wind is covering CW sound, but I’ll try to fix it as low as possible.
Will add the link herre when ready…

Good watch… :wink:

Thanks for friendly messages guys !
To Klaus DF2GN, intro song is from The Cranberries “Promises”, and final is a local bask song called “Hegoak” meaning the freedom in Bask Country. You can find many more on the net if you like, have a look on : http://abarka.free.fr/downloads/chants.php
