SP59GURU - commemorative activity of EA2IF

Hello,
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

I declare 2023 the year of the right wrist in my family :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

CW works but for other functionality recovering I guess I need a few more days.

I hope to see you soon on frequencies :exclamation:

Hi Jarek,

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.

Thank you Marco :exclamation:

Chasing as SP59GURU is an adventure Friends :wink:
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 :wink:

Today it was demanded some skills to activate CW due to ARRL contest, anyway I can say I am happy with the result.

The shack:

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 :exclamation:

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 :champagne:

Many thanks activator & chasers.
