Today is my 150th Sota activation: Monte Morbaro I/AB-062

I just found out that today is my 150th Sota activation! I am very happy and I want to share it with you!

The destination was a new one never activated, Monte Morbano I/AB-062 (1628 mt. high), a beautiful peak in Abruzzo. To reach it I first traveled 1 and a half hour on the motorway from Rome and then 5 km “off road” on a “white” road using my new car which performed well (a Dacia Duster).

And then the simple climb of 50 minutes (3 km) towards Monte Morbano where I installed my station (Elecraft Kx3 and EFHW antenna) and made 39 QSOs with 4 P2P.

A beautiful mountain day, perhaps too hot for December

The valley was beautiful today, I was alone all day, I didn’t meet anyone, in a sort of unique magic. The perfect day for the 150th activation !
