Sunday March 27th, 2016, morning
This summit is located nearby A25 (highway) so it’s easy to get there.
The climb is easy by a dirt track.
The views should be great but spring was a little bit rough on that day… 😦
When I arrived to the summit the Wx is windy and cold but bearable (5C inside the shelter)
The first difficulty was my lack of glasses (i need them to have a clear view of the log, not to see in the distance…). I monted everything and when I entered my shelter I didn’t have the glasses…A moment of deep breath….Let’s rock and roll without them…
“we will see”…
Then, the Wx became rough. A cloud engolfed the summit and the rain set in.
Also, some fog. The temp drop to 5C.
I started calling on 40 m. Silence. Repeated the call several times but no answer…
On the 20 m band, the propagation conditions are better.
After 2 calls RBNHole spot me and the pile-up started…
19 QSOs in 34min (0914z to 0948z).
Wow, I’m improving my deficient pile-up management! 🙂
After those 19 QSO in a row, the pile-up dried and I decided to pack and leave the summit.
On my way back, the glasses are in the dirt track, calmly waiting for me!… 🙂
