As a part of walking the Camino Frances between St Jean Pied de Port and Santiago de Compostela, I am planning to activate several EA2 summits with the help generously offered by Guru EA2IF and Ignacio EA2BD.
Yesterday 28/8/2019 the first of these activations took place at ea2/nv-012 Ortzantzurieta (corrected) with the help of Ignacio EA2BD and Jorge EA2LU.
I have worked both of those operators from vk so it was a great pleasure to meet them and an honour to be given such hospitality.
Yesterday the 20m band produced great conditions around Europe and workable signals from the US on cw. I found it a great pleasure to be able to end a fairly challenging day with a sota activation. I made many keying errors and at one stage gave the summit reference as my callsign! It had been a tough day.
More activations are possible on Sunday 1st of September. We will post alerts.
