  • SOTA: LA/TM-013 Vestre Vealøs

    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 […]

  • SOTA: LA/VF-013 Jordstøyp

    SOTA: LA/VF-013 Jordstøyp

    Last activation of the year, and I was hoping to do a 2+3 pointer, but didn’t manage to get away before 2 in the afternoon. So, I had to make do with an “easy” one. The walk up is only about two kilometres, but the total ascent is close to 250m – and most of […]

  • JP99: Tromsø/Storsteinen 421m

    JP99: Tromsø/Storsteinen 421m

    I’ve heard Tromsø described as “the Nordic Paris” – but I’m pretty sure people saying this falls into one of three categories; 1) People that has never been to Tromsø, 2) People that have never been to Paris, or 3) People that has been to neither Tromsø nor Paris! Not to say anything bad about […]

    F/LB5JJ or When in JN18du…

    I asked my boy where he wanted to go for our autumn break, and was told we should go to Paris. No further explanation as to why was forthcoming, but I suspect it has something to do with the fact that Lionel Messi now plays for PSG. If you don’t know who Lionel Messi is, […]

  • SOTA: LA/VF-015 Holtehedde

    SOTA: LA/VF-015 Holtehedde

    Was planning on activating Mistberget (LA/AH-006) today, but that would entail setting an alarm and getting up early. On a Sunday! Not really our favourite thing. So we settled on something a bit closer to home. There are several routes up, but we parked by Holtetjønn about a kilometre from Hvarnes in Lågendalen. Approximately 5km […]

  • LA1T 10m net – pedestrian portable

    LA1T 10m net – pedestrian portable

    Tried something different for the LA1T 10m net. Attached a telescopic CB antenna to my X6100 and went “pedestrian portable” from Signalen (145 meters above sea level). Running 5W into the ~1m long antenna sitting at eye-level was of course quite different from my normal setup running 100W into a sleeve dipole up a 10m […]
