SOTA F/PO-264 "Mont Ursuya" + VIDEO

Hi all, tomorrow I will try to go to Mont Ursuya in the Bask Country if WX permitting (a LOT of rain these days !). F4EMK and I wanted to both activate a summit but I am only able on week days… maybe next time Frédo ! :wink:
The frequencies will be (+ or -) in this order :

  • 14.280 ssb
  • 14.060 cw
  • 10.118 cw
  • 7.090 ssb
  • 7.032 cw
    I just “try” again with SSB but won’t loose too much battery if NIL.
    Hope to hear you tomorrow guys !

Activity confirmed, leaving QRA…

Hi all, just back from “Ursuya”…
Good activity with (finally) some SSB QSOs !
12DXCC (F, OE, DL, GW, OK, SM, YU, HB, G, S5, ON, GM) for 43 QSOs : 2 on 20M SSB, 21 on 30M CW, 9 on 40M SSB & 11 on 40M CW.
Cloudy WX when climbing and operating and very sunny when QRT (battery low - tnx SSB HI - I was using 10W at the end).
I will add the link of the video and photos when ready here.
Thanks for your calls…
Chris F8DZY.

In reply to F8DZY:

Hi Chris, congrats on a FB activation and thanks for the QSO on 40m-cw, I didn’t hear you on 40m-ssb, the band was a little crazy.
Looking forward to the Video.

In reply to F8DZY:
Hello Chris,

Désolé pour la CW… hi ! c’est un comble !
Merci pour le QSO SSB, mais c’était limite (l’opérateur n’est vraiment pas dans le coup…)
A une prochaine fois

In reply to all :

GW0DSP : thank you Mike, it was a pleasure to work you again from the Bask Country summits ! Yes, I had a better propagation on 30M without QRM, 40M was very noisy and QSB too from my side…
F4EMK : merci Frédo pour les spots et l’appel, j’espère que tu auras beau temps samedi pour le SOTA ! :wink:
F6ENO : ben alors Alain, on préfère la phonie maintenant ?? HI (1 seul F en CW : F6ACV 40M CW)
