I’m planning to activate one or two G summits in region SP, on the weekend of 18/19 June. Date not firm yet. I see there is a 6m event on 17/18 June.
I was thinking of the obvious summits like SP-013, SP-015 but I am attracted to SP-001 too. I plan to use the ft817 on HF and 6m/2m. Antenna will be a linked dipole for HF. I don’t require a drive-up summit, I’m quite happy with something up to about 4km walk each way. SP-001 seems to be slightly more than 4km but apart from boggy conditions encountered by past activators, quite feasible.
It would be great if I could make a contact back to VK. What time would I need to be on summit to do that on 20m, either ssb or CW? (Guessing 0700 UTC latest)
I’d welcome any guidance or recommendations on whether there are summits I should not consider due to access or other issues. I should have enough time to activate two summits in one day so if possible that’s what I’d like to do.
