I’ll be travelling to South Africa next week and hoping to activate a few summits while I’m there. I have posted some alerts to SOTAwatch, but I will preface with the fact that days, times, frequencies and summits may change. The purpose of the trip is to reconnect with family there, not to activate SOTA. Well, partly to activate SOTA. OK, who am I kidding? SOTA will feature prominently.
I will have HF and VHF capabilities, up to 50W and into a Buddistick vertical. With current solar conditions suggesting I’d be highly unlikely to carry the journey up to EU or across to VK, I expect I will be conversing with the locals, but I hope folks will be listening and pointing your monstrous beams south!
