SOTA Activations during Christmas break

I activated 6 summits in EA2 & EA5 during the Christmas break. It was great fun to do combined activations with Ignacio EA2BD & Jose EA2KV.

Activation in Navarra with EA2BD

Activation in Zaragoza with EA2KV

In EA5, the WX was simply unbeliable - 17C at 1000m elevation at midday.

EA5/CS -016 Tossal de Saragossa
Very pleasant hike with great weather and ample views of all the valleys and sierras of this part of the province, including various SOTA references: Penyagolosa, Bartolo, Penya, Campanilles, Espaneguera,..
A somehow troublesome activation with a shorted radiator to the coax shield - intermitent conection. Thanks to those who try to contact me.

EA5/CS-020 Campanilles
Acompannied by various family members, fantastic views of the Mediterranean sea. Very sunny and warm WX - about 15C.
Ermita de LLucia, Alcossebre - starting point 
Columbretes Islands 

At the summit, 7m pole, 12m random wire + counterpoise, T1 tuner

Operating position with views. Many thanks to Guru EA2IF & Ignacio EA2BD, who awaited at EA2/NV-097 for our arrival to the summit for a S2S.
After New Years eve, I activated Bartolo & Espaneguera in EA5/CS. Great WX and QSOs again.
