3A/YO2MSB Monte Carlo activation! Between 05 and 12 of September 2014, I will be QRV in portable from Monte Carlo, most probable somewhere from the city's main harbour. An authorisation from the Monaco Department of Communications was already issued:
SOTA Marathon in August, 2014: between 11/08 and 16/08 I will be QRV from a list of summits located in the middle of Romania, as follows: Transalpina alpine road (YO/MC-052 Mohoru & YO/MC-050 Setea Mare), Transfagarasan alpine road (YO/MC-007 Vanatoarea lui Buteanu & YO/MC-049 Fantana), Bucegi mountains (YO/MC-009 Costila, YO/MC-006 Omu & YO/MC-008 Bucsoiu) and the outskirts of Brasov (YO/EC-252 Piatra Arsa, YO/EC-331 Spinarea Lunga & YO/EC-428 Lempes). Most of the summits will be 10 points activations, so keep an eye on SOTA cluster! Preferred band will be 20m and also 12m if the propagation allows. This marathon depends A LOT on good weather, will see what happens in that week on romanian mountains.
