Stephan HB9EAJ has laid the foundation for a whole herd of mountain goats!

Being single is probably not the real thing in the long run…

…that’s probably what Stephan @HB9EAJ 's mountain goat thought.

As of today, it is no longer alone.

From today Stephan has two goats :goat: :goat: in the stable and if they make an effort… then there will be many more! :wink:

Congratulations to the start of a whole mountain goat herd.

Today I was with Stephan on FL/VO-066, FL/VO-067 … and FL/VO-088.

It was our second joint action and it was again a lot of fun! …and we complement each other quite well: Stephan serves the SSB chasers and I satisfy the CW community.

Dear Armin, dear activators and chasers,

Thank you very much for your kind words, it’s just great to be part of this community and this special scheme!

The great thing about SOTA for me is that you always have a goal, in my case not (anymore) the points, but new landscapes, surprises along the way, the nature, and last but not least the many QSOs on the summit with familiar and new stations.

Yesterday, with good weather and as Armin @DL6GCA already explained, we did a three summit joint activation in our beloved Vosges. All three summits were new to me and two of them counted as complete.

On our second summit Haut du Roc (FL/VO-067), I had a QSO with the determined SOTA chaser Franck @F4ILZ, who lives near this summit and spontaneousely decided to vist us on the summit.

Selfie on FL/VO-067 with Armin, Stephan and Franck.

After our third summit, on our way back home, we stopped at a café and celebrated my second goat with a glass of Crémant d’Alsace, cheers!

A big thank you to all the people that dedicate a fair amount of their time to the fabulous infrastructure of SOTA!

Congratulations Stephan on your second MG. I hope to have many more S2S with you.

Fine business Stephen!

Thanks to all for the kind words!

It was definitely the right decision 4 years ago to give SOTA a try.

Have fun and we’ll hear each other in the air soon!
