First off, August was pretty hot. Still, after a long hiatus, we started doing SOTA activations again. We began in July with only two (best one was on Magura Domesnic, great scenery!), but we did even more in August. Andrei, having some time off, activated a few summits alone (13 in total), while I managed only 5.
Last activation in August was Cearcanul - you can read more about it, see the pics and the GPS track here.
On the 16th we participated in the 6th Stage of YO VHF/UHF Marathon and got the ODX with a confirmed contact at 677 kilometers (in 2m).
On the 29th we participated in the YO HF DX contest with poor results. The extended team (working on two rigs) was YO8AZQ, YO8TLC, YO8SST (rig1, 7MHz, SSB and CW) and YO8AGA, YO8SSQ, YO8SBR (rig2, 14MHz, SSB only). Contest site was set in a copse on the outskirts of Suceava.
Hi, we're a team of hams from Romania. We're into SOTA and other activities. Thanks for stopping by!
