  • POTA: First Norwegian Kilo Award

    POTA: First Norwegian Kilo Award

    I did it! 1000 QSOs from the same park; LA-2535 Slottsfjellet Historic Site! Ever since LB0FI Morten told me he was working on his kilo award from LA-2532 Fredriksten festning National Military Park, I’ve been wanting to go for one for myself. And once I got my local high ground into the park registry I […]

    POTA: LA-2535 Slottsfjellet Historic Site

    Spring has taken a break, and it’s been pissing down for for most of the day! Tried my luck with a SOTA activation in spite of the rain, but after about an hour of battling continuously deeper wet snow, I gave up and returned to the car. I’m sure it’s a nice summit, but I […]

  • SOTA: LA/VF-012 Røysa

    SOTA: LA/VF-012 Røysa

    Summer is slowly but firmly tightening its grip on the Norwegian weather, so I decided to make the most of it and activate a few summits this sunny Saturday. First one out, and a new one for me, was LA/VF-012, Røysa. Two years since the last time it was activated, and going by the state […]

  • SOTA: LA/VF-017 Storås

    SOTA: LA/VF-017 Storås

    Winter is finally letting go, and today was this years first SOTA activation where I didn’t have to wade through snow to get to the summit. It was raining for most of the night and early morning, so I picked an easy one. And for once, that turned out to be true! Spent about 35 […]

  • POTA: LA-2532 Fredriksten festning

    POTA: LA-2532 Fredriksten festning

    I joined Morten LB0FI activating LA-2532 Fredriksten festning today. Nice weather and acceptable temperature. And a great QTH with excellent conditions (at least on 10m and 20m). We rigged the 2 x 22m dipole on the 10m DX Commander mast. Fed by 300Ω ladder line from the CG3000 tuner. Tunes nicely from 10m down to […]

  • SOTA: LA/TM-010 –  Skrehelle

    SOTA: LA/TM-010 – Skrehelle

    Time for some vertical movement, both for me and Oscar (my son). Winter in Norway makes it too easy to find an excuse to stay indoors. I reckoned Skrehelle (LA/TM-010), with its summit at 553m would do us both some good. And I think I was right. We couldn’t have asked for a nicer day. […]
