After five weeks I had again possibility to make a SOTA activation. Yesterday in Jyranvuori OH/JS-066 was the best radio condition after spring. Stations game mainly 599 and very strongly – I felt that life is back!
I am dreaming to make a new Tour next summer and the destination would Bavaria in Germany if possible. After short research with SOTA Map and Google Maps Bavaria Low Mountains looks very attractive area for the Tour. I even found a local map (http://www.bavaria.by/low-mountains) which is very accurate and helps for approaching summits. My plan is visit in the area which is between Passau and Deggendorf and East from those cities until Czech border.
I would know if there is some local restrictions with summits (parking, snakes, walking in forest etc.). Also I would hear comments of potential Hotels and Gasthouses where could stay, good but not too expensive. My XYL is going to join the Tour but she said: “why I would come for sitting in the forest when you are keeping qsos ONLY”? So, what kind of interesting things, places etc. is located in this area? I suppose that for political reasons it would be best to try arrange win-win Tour.
It is lot of time to next summer, but well planned is half done! So, if some of you SOTAmates who know this are well could help me? Please, contact me by email [oh2nos(at)sral.fi].
