VIDEO: OE5 group activation of OE/ST-522 Triebenfeldkogel

Hello everyone,

As a followup of our great team action on Plechy [Video link] past winter we decided to do a hike in summertime together. As it is finding a suitable day was not easy so autumn came to OE land for this hike to finally happen.

Some huts are closing already that late in the season so we decided to stay overnight in a guesthouse near Trieben and follow a hike that Martin OE5REO documented already for SOTAmaps.
The Triebenfeldkogel OE/ST-522 is a grass covered summit and looked like a good option as the first snow already had hit Austria some days before the hike.

The group members are Sylvia @OE5YYN, Franz @OE5FSM, Dieter @OE5DZL, Heinz @OE5EEP, Joe OE5JFE and cute support by Kimo the SOTA dog.

So please enjoy the video report:

And some pictures as teaser:

It was again great fun and plannings for the next hike have started :+1:

I would totally approve that suggestion. Not sure how flexible our telecommunication and licence officers are :sweat_smile:

Again congrats to your 10 year SOTA anniversary Jarek and hear you soon.

Great activation, company and video! Thanks! Will try to follow your example on a LZ summit!

Another excellent video Joe, out of interest how far (km) is the ascent to the summit.

Thanks for sharing the team’s adventures.

Thanks. It’s always fun to hike and play radio in good company :+1:

Andrew here is the summary from my GPS watch:

So about 6 km distance and 700 m ascent to summit - and then back (or one could include a second summit if you look at the map)
Martin OE5REO has shared the tracks. Best way is to look at
