I will be on the Azore Islands Terceira (CU3; IOTA EU-175) and Graciosa (CU4; IOTA EU-175) from the 25th of July to the 2nd of August 2017 and plan to activate all summits with the callsign CT8/HB9DPR/P.
I will be spotting via SMS or APRS where coverage allows.
I plan to take my sota equipment KX2 & Alexloop.
Some infos about your SOTA references in Terceira and Graciosa Isl.
The summits CU/TE-001 and CU/TE-003 are drive-in references.
CU/TE-004 is a close by drive-in summit but a walk around Monte Brasil park is a must.
From there we saw a large group of dolphins swimming near by.
CU/TER-002 is a very nice walk inside the island.
All summits have easy access and you should have nice views.
They are almost drive in (with a 4x4) but a walk is a must!
If you need more info send me an email.

Ok on your trip to the Azores, I am sure you will find the Island breathtaking, we were there back in 1989, visiting a radio friend that lives on Terceira, if you hear CU3AK Jaime say hello from me, also if you need any assistance Jaime will be sure to help.
