On Saturday the 4th of September I climbed again on the „Preußisch Velmerstot“ At the Velmerstot ends the well known 156km long „Hermannsweg“ Hiking trail thru the Teutoburg Forest. But I only walked the last 5km (look at the GPS-track) from the car park over the Silberbach via the „Lippische Velmerstot“  (441m asl) to the  „Preußisch Velmerstot“ (468m) with the Eggeturm (watchout tower).

The tower got a new roof in the last two years, you can compare it in my „Preußisch Velmerstot Photo Gallery„.

It was nice sunny weather  that day and I wanted to play around a little bit with antennas, tune over the bands, make SSB and CW, HF and VHF.

At the end of the day I had 91 QSO in the log.  It was a nice day with having lunch on the summit, watching from the tower, ragchewing, observe the late summer sunny nature.

My used station on that day:

  • Yaesu FT-817
  • 100w PA for 10-80m
  • Link Dipole for 40 / 30 / 20 / 15 + 10m
  • Dipole for 80m
  • HB9CV for 144 MHz

On 2m I heard a lot of G-Stations, but my transceiver had too low power (5w) in the contest-qrm to reach them …

Thanks all for the contacts, the many spots and first time for me: a SOTA spot from DX … special thanks to VE2JCW for the QSO and the spot.
