Today I put on air EG59GURU/P from EA2/NV-059.
Sure Guru would have activated this one around his birthday, past January 11th.
The climb today was rather difficult, large amounth of fresh snow, making my steps slower.
Nevertheless, despite the minus 2 Celsius, I found the summit not windy and had a good activation. The summit is viewless crowded with trees.
I ran on 7-10-14 MHz and I tried 28 MHz in the end but the band, as usual for Spain, was not worky for central EU.
Anyway, good to remember our friend Guru, and count 103 QSO.
Do you know last time I activated this summit, back in 2021, I had a S2S with Guru who was in fact celebrating his 56th birthday? Funny coincidence.
Thanks all for the QSO, 73
Thank you very much for activation and nice report.
I was a bit late today due to household duties …
My friend Alex had surgery and need more care:
This is mainly my job bcse my wife has accident some time ago:
On the rail to the summit was snow but not too deep:
On the summit two messages:
1st good - shelter was accessible:
2nd bad - no internet - I activated thank RBN gate:
View from the shelter which protected me from the wind:
Photos taken on way back:

I am back and if WX allows I intend to activate SP/BZ-024 on coming Saturday.
on coming Saturday.
the summit schedule is changed to SP/BZ-020, please kindly be noted
I declare 2023 the year of the right wrist in my family
CW works but for other functionality recovering I guess I need a few more days.
I hope to see you soon on frequencies
Thank you so much for keeping Guru’s memory alive with this heartwarming tribute. Guru was one of the first DX stations to ever chase me on summit and I will always have a fond memory of him. I only wish I would have known him longer.
Jarek! The most important is to have a good recovery. Hope your wife is better nowadays…
Sure will meet on air soon again.
Take care my friend.
Thank you Ignacio, recovery after serious injury of my wife is going step by step but no step back
For the air I decided until my coming back to activations SP59GURU will be chaser
Chasing as SP59GURU is an adventure Friends
But I try to be patient.
I guess I need one week more to recover the wrist and come back to activations.
For the moment thanks in advance activators to open your ears for SP59GURU
Thx for QSO today (and for your patience).
All the best for you and your family
73 de Klaus, DL2KL

I am back
Today I activated SP/BZ-008
In the log 43 QSOs on 14, 10 & 7 MHz CW
Stay tuned tomorrow - I will try to be on 28 MHz from border summit OM/ZA-045
Today it was demanded some skills to activate CW due to ARRL contest, anyway I can say I am happy with the result.
View taken on the trail to OM/ZA-045 (border summit):
On starting stage I used 10m monobander antenna, very happy to work with no problem Janusz PJ5/SP9FIH
Then, starting from 7MHz I used “trial friendly” 10, 20, 40m endfed antenna.
SP59GURU during activations never chase S2S itself, I am very happy to work activators who is calling me - today it was Mario
@DJ2MX from DL/MF-082 - thank you very much Mario
In the log in total 63 QSOs, 1 x S2S, 18 x DX.
Sherry on the cake were 5 QSOs on 12m band, 4 of them DX

Many thanks activator & chasers.
