Trip to Chamonix(F) and Nendaz (HB) - the Alps

Will be 4-6 August in Chamonix, the Brevent F/AB-258 looks like a good bet, seems to have a pretty large activation zone to keep my shortened EFHW for 20,40,30m away from the crowds. Then 6-13 August in Nendaz (HB), HB/VS-112 Mont d’Aprille, VS-242 La Crevasse, VS-245 l’Ardeve, VS-251 Pierre Avoi look possible…La Crevasse looks like a good bet since I can park at Col du Lein or Col du Tronc and looks OK for a family hike. Pierre Avoi looks fun but is a rock pillar with stairs/ladders and looks like the activation area is not too big. Does anyone have any thoughts? Thanks 73 Hal N6JZT


Hello Hal,
I will be there too. Staying at Chamonix with other OM from 1st of august untill 22/08.

Have nice trip, 73 Gerald

I climbed AB001 twice in the 70s when I was young! Hope to see you on the bands, if not s2s then maybe as a qrp chaser from Nendaz HB9 in the Valais. 73! Hal N6JZT
