Guru is in my SOTA log many times, including from Mount Hayden (W2/GC-072). With this in mind, I am headed there today to commemorate the contributions EA2IF made to my SOTA experience. Listen for me in EA.
Stay well & 73!
Thanks for remember Guru on his birthday.
The group of his close friends commented on this today. We’re are in the way to get some special callsigns for his memorial that will be on air soon in March. More details on that in a few weeks.
Mike, thanks for it, I was very glad to have the QSO with you today!
I really liked his idea of matching peak numbers with birthdays. After he died I decided to undertake a commemorative activation on a 057 peak but was thwarted by a road closure due to fallen trees. The weather in that area has been wetter than normal and very windy so frequent closures could have been a possibility.
I eventually did the activation, VK3/VC-057, but on the 31 December 2022. Late I know, but it’s done.
Indeed I liked the idea so much that on my birthday I activated a peak with an appropriate number and I hope to do it again this year.
I have written it up but the HTMl requirement for this space means I can’t just upload my pdf document with embedded photos. I did try to search for instructions but struck out
Yesterday I had the chance to activate Wank, DL/EW-001.
By the way, it was also my birthday yesterday.
To be honest, I also liked the idea.
The number 001 is not matching any number, except that its the first time that I activated on my birthday.
Usually weather conditions in January are not activator-friendly in DL, so I did find an appropiate summit in the range of the fifties…
