Sota “Ferragosto” Contest 2011
This is the 3rd consecutive year that with Andrea IK0LNN we go on the summit of Monte Terminillo, the highest mountain near Rome.
Path is quite easy, we cover about 420m of difference between “Rifugio Sebastiani”, a mountain hut, and the summit of Terminillo (2217m asl), in about 1 hour with a backpack of 10kg each.
Contest call was IK0LNN/0 in JN62LL, SOTA reference LZ305, we worked mainly on 144MHz and some qso also on 432.
Due to the bad weather on the north of Italy we had less contacts of 2010.
We used the FT817 at 250mW and a 10el long yagi (about 7m boom).
ODX was an EA6 station worked thanks to a fantastic sea duct.
