Taking advantage of some time to spare due to a hospital treatment of a family member, we cross the forest of Serra da Boa Viagem under a nice shining sun.
This is a drive on summit with a large AZ.
So, I chose the viewpoint to install the shack and make a quick activation.
After morning experience, I started in the 20m/cw, at 1412z.
10 min after I had 7 QSO.
Because any delay would be very annoying to the family member that was receiving treatment in the hospital, I changed to 2 m/cw where I’ve done a quick QSO with CT7AGT.
Knowing that EA/CT2GSN/p would be in an EA summit I listened 7.190/ssb. Nothing but QRN/QRM
For the final I called 2m/ssb – CT2IUV could be listening in any summit – but no answer.
So, at 1430z I run away from viewpoint, which was packed with people and very hot.
And nobody asked what I’m doing in such place using a fish rod….
