Two further SOTA Mountain Goats for Thuri HB9CEV and René HB9NBG

Dear all

More participants provide more goats - it’s somehow simple: Summits on the Air is very popular in Switzerland, and it is a pleasure for me to take note of two further milestones within the Swiss SOTA chapter:

First for Thuri HB9CEV. Thuri is an experienced and prudent mountaineer. He completed the score for his 2nd Mountain Goat together with HB9BIN and HB9BQU on an activation of alpine summit Clariden, HB/GL-003. See some impressive pictures on the SOTLAS summit page!

Thuri is not only a good alpine climber but also an ufb hobby cook. In the still unmanned Clariden mountain hut he served a perfect dinner to the participants of the tour, prepared on a wood stove. He bought all the ingredients himself and carried them to the hut.

And second one is René HB9NBG. René is a well-known SOTA professional completing now his 4th Mountain Goat. His masterpiece was the first activation of Pizzo Barbarera, HB/UR-046, a secluded alpine summit on the border line of the Swiss cantons Uri and Ticino, together with his wife Carine. See more of this summit e.g. here.

Congratulations to you both! Keep your fires ignited to enjoy even more summits on the air and bring this joy down to others.

Congratulations to Arthur and René for reaching twice Mountain Goat.

For me it is always an enrichment and satisfaction when I can do a tour with Arthur, HB9CEV. So, I am looking forward to the tours planned with him for July on the following 4 mountain: Alphubel (HB/VS-013), Weissmies (HB/VS-027), Castor (HB/VS-011) and Pollux -(VS-021). Each of them has an altitude of more than 4’000 meters.

Dear Markus, dear all,
Thank you for all the congratulations. Since I’m retired, I have more time for my hobbies and these are hiking, mountaineering and radio. It’s fun and satisfying. So I hope that we will have many more QSOs and s2s in the future.
Congratulations also to René for your 4th Mountain Goat. I still remember our very weak cw s2s QSO :wink:.
