Our the first SOTA this year – OK/ST084 Ladvi
After days of cold weather and rain we have sunny weekend so we decided to go to a trip best online casino australia fast payouts. A day before, I charged my accumulator and prepared all necessary equipment. Next day, on Saturday sunny afternoon I put it into rucksack and we were ready to go.
From Neratovice it is not so far a way. I drove only about 15 minutes and we were in Dablice. We left car on a parking place and continued on foot. The way went throught a nice forest and around very small lake where people left dogs to swim. Very nice landscape, indeed. After 40 minutes or so, we came to the top of the hill. Sons were playing and I started to unpack my station from rucksack. It didn’t take long time and I was on the air. First QSO was with Ilrich HB9CGA, the second was with Jirka, OK2BDF/P from SOTA OK/VY-040. And after this QSO big pileup started. A lot of station were calling. It was really amazing! After about 30 minutes and 32 QSO later, I closed my station and we went back. My wife took a few photos.
I made these QSO (qsodate: 2011-05-07):
My rig was FT-817 with Z100 autotuner from LDG, antenna was 10m of wire on a tree.
