This is absolutely breathtaking to watch during the night.
Only 20km from where the SMS spotter and cluster server is located!
Will it need resurveying?
Maybe, but VOTA will need updating…
Latest reports suggest that the eruption is already subsiding.
Do you get extra points for activating an erupting summit??
You get "Hazardous duty pay " … Considering what the usual pay is for hams, it won’t be much !
How cool is that?
100C cooler than the magma. About 1,000C. Marshmallows: 30 seconds at 30 cm.
