In reply to SM5KRI:
Thanks for the pictures Chris.

Interestingly I couldn’t hear them at all on 40m but they were a nice solid signal on 30m. They seemed to be working down a good pile there and I even heard a couple of JA stations working them.

I’m still hoping to do at least one SM activation in the summer… fingers crossed.

In reply to SM5KRI:

I heard S3-S7 QRN on 40 m from the thunder and hailstorms that took place in France on that evening. In addition the frequencies were already busy with other traffic, but finally I could get reply from SK3BG/P on 30 m. Looking forward for more activations from the North, where the summits are less accessible than in more populated areas.
