Wrong reference on Jan 11th from CT3

Unfortunately, I gave the wrong reference for my activation on Jan 11th.
From 11:04 until 11:53 I was on CT3/MI-004 (which is a drive-in summit), not on MI-002 (which requires a longer walk).
WX was unfavourable, with fog and cold wind, the antenna fell over several times and everything was wet vy soon.

Later in the day, conditions improved considerably.

Sorry for the inconvenience!
Thank you for all QSOs - it is a great place for SOTA!

What a contrast Martin! Thanks for the correction. Wish I were there!

Hi Martin

Good to see that you are enjoying SOTA in Madeira. I have been trying to get you on all your summits so far but my local noise levels are high and have only managed contact with you once. I have very happy memories of my time there with Phil G4OBK and I hope to go back again sometime in the future.

Hi Martin,
what a beautiful island. I have been there same months before my active Sota career. What a pity.
But I enjoy our both s2s contacts on 17m.
Tomorrow I will be on a summit again. Hope to hear from you.

Thank you for the QSO anyway, I’ll amend my log. I remember some of your spots on SOTAwatch were showing as MI-XXX

You can use the wx as a good excuse. In the fog all summits look the same. :slight_smile:
