How to get there?

Wasserberg is yet another wooded summit in DM/BW. Please refer to my previous activation report for more details.

Activation report:

Most of the summits nearby I already activated this year – with the exception of Wasserberg, as it is fairly unatractive. Nevertheless I wanted to use the unusual warm weather for an activaion. So I went there again after my last visit in 2017.
I set up the station next to a tall tree with a little bit of sunlight at times and worked the bands from 17 metres down to 60 metres one after the other. On the higher bands some DX could be heard, mostly with good signals. Six NA chasers (2 x VE, 4 x W) went into the log.
During QSY I searched for S2S, but couldn’t work more than a handful other activators.

It was fun again. Thanks for the QSOs!
