SOTA F/PO-266 by F8DZY/P


#1

Hi all,
Just back from “La Pointe de Mandale” at the Franco-Spanish border where the activation was a great success for me with 66 QSOs ! (new personal best score)
Good propagation on 30M and 40M but QRM.

WX was sunny but very cold wind at the summit, it was hard to key ! HI
A nice young “Pottok” stayed with me all the time, I beieve he was interested in SOTA :wink: (will appear on video)
Now back at home, I will make the video next week and add the link here as usually…
Log is uploaded.
Many thanks to everybody, CU on next new SOTA.

It was a pleasure to have a SOTA QSO, as usual Chris.

It was also great to find such good propagation on 30m.

Many thanks for using this excellent band.

In reply to G4SSH:

Yes Roy, very worthy of note, 30m is such a magnificant band for Sota (or otherwise) being very quiet most of the time and usually good propagation between EU and the UK.
I would encourage more OPS to start using 30m after their 40m activations, especially on contest days.

Hi Chris !

Encore une belle activation.
Merci pour les QSO CW et…SSB !!!
J’ai hâte de voir le Pottok… était-il sensible aux points et aux traits ??

A bientôt sur un nouveau sommet.
