Today’s activation from Norway (LA/DL4MFM/p on LA/HM-090 Noppi). WX was rainy and the way were most time through absolute wilderness, bog, boulder fields, mosquitos, elk poo. Exhausting. 1 hour for 2km (in Germany 20 Minutes). When I reached the summit I set up the station with FT-817, MP-1 coil, foldet radiator, „linked“ radial and made some 15 QSOs on 20m, then heavy rain and a thunderstorm said: make QRT and go back to the car (a nice S2S QSO with Bernd DL2DXA and also Mike GW0DSP are in the log )
