Dear SOTA friends,
Monday 04-08 at 07.30 h local time … SV9 here we comes!
Our operating base (hotel)is in the village GEORGIOUPOLI nearby RETHIMNO.
Of course I cannot let go this adventure beyond without the activation of some SV/CR sota places.
However, I want inform you all that everything are not yet 100% certain.
I want say: if its really much too hot, very difficult excursion, very difficult ways, car rental ect … ect … it is be able that I must anulate/cancelled some sota-places. For this reason I post no days and times on te activation SOTAwatch2.
Then next … Sorry but I have no GSM cellphone with Internet. I will send a SMS message to Ed ON4EDM when QRV on the summit for each activation . I hope that Ed ON4EDM will do the necessary to the SOTAwatch2. Also I will ask to the first worked station if these want to spot me on a DX-cluster. Therefore you must keep these very close.
Furthermore I together with my Xyl Annemie will do our extreme best to bring everything to a successfully sota activation.
Next places stand on the list.
