UK-Trip by G/HB9BIN/p

Dear Sota-Chasers
From the 5.4.-9.4. 2013 I try to activate SOTA’s in the aera G/SC and G/DC.
I will work 10watt or 100watt Buddipole fullzise (no traps) or Alex-Loop on 30 es 20M.
My wife is with me. Therefore I will not stay too long on a summit.
First Summit will be tmw G/SC-010 with G4WSB and his sun!
tnx es 73 de HB9BIN, Juerg

Hi Juerg

In order to be correct with your callsign under CEPT rules, you should use the prefix M - so M/HB9BIN/P please.

I hope you enjoy your visit to the UK, and I hope the weather will be less cold than it is right now!

Please to heard you !

In reply to HB9BIN_3:

Hello Juerg, have a good trip.

Reference a post on this thread about prefixes - for your information p.6

Hopefully speak to you soon. Hope the flight was OK.

Bye for now.

I hope that you have a good trip Juerg, with many QSO’s.

Hi Juerg

Hope you enjoy your trip to the UK. I look forward to working you on 40m SSB if you have plans to operate on SSB.

Hope the WX stays kind for you.

Have a good trip Juerg, at least if you start on G/SC-010 the summits can only get better after that. (G/DC-006 excepted)

In reply to HB9BIN_3:
Hi Juerg,

I hope to work you during your trip to G land. I will probably miss out on G/SC-010 due to being at work but hopefully I should catch you over the weekend.

In reply to HB9CSA:

Hello Fritz, I do not think the weather will be better for Juerg. I hope he has packed the right clothes :wink: I am sure he has because he knows. Here in SE - high wind, very light snow, +2C. Brrrr

G/SC-010 can only mean one thing. You’re flying into Bristol Airport!

If I’m correct, you’ll find it’s only a 5 minute drive from the airport, and I suggest you park in the village just up from the church. (plenty of space)
If Bill is with you, he’ll no doubt know the way which avoids the rubbish tip which adorns the summit and would give your wife an unfavourable taste of UK activating!

GL, I’ll be listening for you.

VFB signal on 30m at 0920z today Juerg! Stronger than many of the EUs calling you.

73, Bill

Hi probably will miss all the activations as I’m away until Monday PM. I can see Brown Willy DC-002 from my cottage so good line of site. Weather was very warm all week until I left yesterday about 12C midday although a cold wind from the east. I’m sure you’ll both love Devon and Cornwall, especilly Bodmin Moor. Just remember there’s a great take off to the west, USA and VE!
