Last trip is behind and it is time for summary. First, I need to say that the challenge what I took was bigger what I expected. Three days and eighteen summits means six summit per day. Because Finnish Summer is very light it is not any problem to make six summit per day but after done those I know that you do not have any time to operate, your task is only to transfer from point to point and assemble and disassemble your station. Time for operating is minimal. The last trip was longest and took 17 hour, 1.5 hours more what I calculated.
Second, in future I do not make this kind of trips. Depending of the case three to four summits per day is maximal. I like more operating than driving/hiking. When you have limited time for operating you are a bit nervous if anybody answer to your call or not. But it is good to make tests and understand what is good for you and what is not.
Third, big hand for all your chaser who made this possible! Without you I had not any extra points, now I have eighteen more as before. An activator is fully alone in the summit and you, chasers, are the helping hand.
Fourth, statistics: during eighteen summits I had 168 qsos which means 9.3 qsos per summit. With 22 chaser I made 62 % of qsos but every single chaser is more valuable for the activator as a kilogram of gold. Those 22 chasers are: EA2DT, ON4FI, SP9AMH, DJ5AV, DF5WA, CU3AA, DL3HXX, DL1FU, OE8SPW, HB9AGH, DL2HWI, PA0SKP, DL6UHA, EA2IF, EA2LU, F6EAZ, G4SSH, HB9MKV, KA1R, OK1DVM, OK2PDT, PB2T.
11 qsos with Manuel EA2DT. 8 qsos with Karel ON4FI and Mariusz SP9AMH. 7 qsos with Michael DJ5AV and Berthold DF5WA. 5 qsos with Joao CU3AA, Lothar DL3HXX, Friedrich DL1FU, Paul OE8SPW and Ambrosi HB9AGH. 4 qsos with Dietmar DL2HWI and Sake PA0SKP. 3 qsos with Hans DL6UHA, Guru EA2IF, Jorge EA2LU, Chris F6EAZ, Roy G4SSH, Rudolf HB9MKV, Matthew KA1R, Miroslav OK1DVM, Jan OK2PDT and Hans PB2T. The rest 38 % of qsos I made with 51 different calls, which are: DK1WI, DK4RW, DL1DVE, DL1NKS, DL2DXA, DL3JON, DL3JPN, DL6AP, DL6WT, DL7URB, DL8DXL/p, DL8UVG, EA1DFP, EA2BDS/p, EA4CWM, F5SQA, F8FKK, G3VQO, G4AFI, G4FGJ, G4OBK, G4ZIB, HB9BCB/p, HB9CGA, HB9DAX, HB9DGV, I/G4OBK/p, I5GNJ, M0BKV, OE1WIU/p, OE6GND, OE6SOF, OK1ACF, OK2RYA, OM1AX, ON6BZQ, ON6KZ, PA0XAW, PA7ZEE, RV9WMZ/p, S52CU, S69AGH, S69CGA, S69CYV, SK6RM, SM6DER, SN0P, SP8RHP, UA3FQ, W3DX and YO2BP.
Fifth, done what done! Now I transfer to as chaser and in the near future you can hear me as activator from “my own summit”, Jyranvuori OH/JS-066.
