    FT8 on the iPhone with NO wires!

    Running FT8 on the iPhone with NO wires. SDR Control Mobile connects to the IC-705 over WiFi. Far from the best way of running FT8, but seeing as it gives me the option to do so without bringing /any/ additional equipment, I think it’s a really useful tool to have!

  • 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.…

    SOTA: LA/VF-003 Ruketuten

    Nice day to activate the third highest point in LA/VF, LA/VF-003 Ruketuten, at 603 metres above sea level. 4.2km each way, with a total accent of about 360m. Beautiful sunny day, and an uncomplicated walk to the top. I had the advantage of walking in the tracks of LA7MHA Tord and LA2IMA Bjørn Ingar, who…

    SOTA: LA/TM-049 Holtankollen

    Too much crappy weather lately, so both the 11-year old and myself really needed to get out a bit. And even though one of us would rather stay home and play computer games, we both went :-). Not really sure how much snow we should expect, we went for something safe and simple. Hotankollen in…

    SOTA: LA/TM-013 Vestre Vealøs

    Starting the year of right with another trip up Vestre Vealøs. I was there August 31. last year too. I’ve got to say the weather was more that a little bit nicer then! Took another route this time, walking up from the west (Lensmannsseter). About 3.2km, and 250m elevation. The trip up was icy, but…

    Every day should be field day: Frodeåsen

    Time for a break from Christmas related activities; let’s get out of the noise and up onto higher ground. I’m lucky enough to live in a city, and still have access to nature and high-ish ground within walking distance of my home! Was planing a SOTA activation today, but that didn’t happen! So the next…
