How to get there?

From Gosheim to Wilfingen. There is a sign post to the right „Lemberg“ and a car park.

Activation report:

Joint activation with Petronel, YO8SEP. We set up the EFHW in the far corner of the clearing as we didn’t want to draw more attention than necessary to our activation. DL3TU activated in CW first, YO8SEP followed in SSB. Some hikers stopped by and we could explain a bit about SOTA.

The ancient watchtower from 1899. It’s about 33m high and offers a great panoramic view.

We didn’t dare operating from the top. Instead we tried to operate without attracting too much attention.

YO8SEP operating 20m SSB.

We tried to activate 2m FM from the tower but got no replies. With the many QSOs on HF in the log, we didn’t try too long. Instead we enjoyed the „scary“ view on the way down…

I enjoyed the company of Petronel and the good discussions we had on the way.

Thanks for the QSOs, it was fun as always!
