I sorry that for some my SOTA station is weak. Next time I will climb with my Cushcraft X7, my IC-7600 and my 12 + 1 meter tower.

Hi José

There was no problem copying you from EI/IS-015 on Thursday. Thanks for the S2S. I did find that spot a bit amusing when I read it at the time! To be fair, it was half correct - you are usually one of the strongest chasers with me!

In August 2019 the snow was only in very shady places.

Jose, thank you very much for the report on the activation with the impressive photos.

You are one of my hardest working chasers on 20m. So I’m all the more happy about our s2s and then from the alpine height.

And that you heard me in cw, because I’m still quite unsure about that mode.

Hear you soon,

Chris
