  • 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 […]

  • 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

    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 […]

We then move on to testing some uncommon or unusual combination of frequency and modulation. This week we got to try SSB […]

  • POTA: LA-0873 Ilene Nature Reserve

    POTA: LA-0873 Ilene Nature Reserve

    Been under the weather all week and finally starting to feel better. And it seems like half the radio amateurs I know are heading up one (or more; yes Tord, I’m looking at you) SOTA summit! I really don’t have time to be ill next week too, so had the good sense to stay at […]

  • LA1T NVIS portable activity

    LA1T NVIS portable activity

    Last Sunday of the month means another LA1T NVIS portable activity on 80m and 60m. Now also including a quick VHF test at the end. That’s quite a bit of equipment for going portable. A total of three 10m DX Commander poles (one “travel” pole, two normal ones) with supports, 45m random wire antenna with […]
