Summit Activation # 529

I operated today 80 minutes from the Dörenberg, DM/NS-036, and managed in this time 68 cw QSOs – on 28 MHz!

Okay – it was the DARC 10m Contest. Station was 40W and a horizontal polarized Delta Loop in about 8m height, Condx for groundwave were really good and I wondered about so many far distance QSos.

I heard, we had Meteor Scatter … that were the reason – but I do not know how to recognize that. It was uncomfortably cold and icy. In our area yesterday was freezing rain and it was no pleasure to go up the mountain. For the climb, I needed more than twice the time than under normal conditions.
