Today I’ve been out on my very first SOTA activation at LA/RL-069 Bordheia (3690 feet), and this sure was a great experience with lots of fun. It was a cold summit day with minus 15 Degrees Celcius with some snow flurries.
I was using my Elecraft KX3 with a Buddistick vertical antenna, and this was working very well. I got the power from a Bienno Power 12V 8Ah Lithium Iron Phosphate Battery pack, and with this I was able to operate for several hours at the Summit.
Thanks to everyone that worked me today, and made my very first SOTA activation a great success !
