This was my very first SOTA activation and to date the highest summit I activated. That’s why I added this to my blog.
Unfortunately it didn’t qualify with only one QSO. Well, I was pretty new to SOTA back then and just back to amateur radio after almost ten years.
Wx: Sunny, lots of snow
Walking time: unknown
Ascent/ descent: approx. 950 vertical metres from Madlener Haus (1986m)
1 FM QSOs on 2m with a local OE9- Station down in Bludenz.
Rig: Kenwood TH205-E, 5 Watts, 1300mAh 3S LiPo
Ant: J- Pole hanging from the summit cross
How to get there?
From Madlener Haus follow one of the tracks to Hohes Rad
