Vienna SOTA Day Fall 2014 on Sunday September 28, 2014

Dear SOTA friends,

On Sunday, September 28 hams from the eastern part of Austria celebrate their traditional fall Vienna SOTA day. We will activate some summits in and around Vienna. The Team on every summit will use a designated frequency on 2m, some will also be active on HF.
To avoid pileups on the 2m frequencies (which was the Problem on the first event), I maintain a site to collect Information about where the summits can be found on 2m and I assign a frequency when the activators have no other preferences.

The list is available on:

When someone likes to be on the list then please email to:

o e 1 r h c at oevsv . at

Please remove all the space between the letters to get a valid email address.

There’s no need to register, but we print out the list to be sure not to forget anybody :slight_smile: and it is supposed to be a reference for other activators and the chasers. We would also be glad about spontaneous activators who decide to just go up a mountain on Sunday.

We will spot ourselves (or hopefully get spotted) on Sotawatch and some of us have already placed their alerts.

The action should take place from late morning until late afternoon, the exact times are up to the activators.

I’d be glad to meet you on air

Good luck to all of you and many nice contacts!
OE5AUL and I will be attempting a first activation of GroĂźvenediger OE/TI-003 at around lunchtime on Sunday but I doubt that we will be able to bridge the distance to Vienna.

Hi Sylvia,

My Team will be at Hochwechsel (OE/NO-011). I don’t think that we can do something on 2m. Maybe on HF?

From Friday the 3rd to Sunday the 5th of October two teams will climb the summits around Planneralm.

We will activate Hochrettelstein (OE/ST-057), Schoberspitze (OE/ST-083), Schreinl (OE/ST-074), Hintergullingspitz (OE/ST-100) and Breiteckkoppe (OE/ST-077).

I will join them on Saturday, so I will not be able to go up to all summits.

So be prepared…

Hi Reinhard,

We don’t know yet whether it will be possible to set up the hf equipment at the summit. We need to climb in a rope team and if the weather is good enough we might be able to stay for a little while but we can’t say. However, we will definitely only bring the end-fed half wave antenna for 20 m which won’t help to make contact with stations in Vienna, I am afraid :-(.

But will certainly listen out for you and your teams in October!
