F/VL-056 and F/VL-071

Since i made my sixtieth this summer, we spent some days in burgundy, near Chalon sur Soane. The first days were cold and wet, so just walked along the “Voie Verte“, very nice by the way.

I planned to make some sota during the holidays.


We started Sunday 02. July 2017 to activate 2 summits, here are the details.


The first Summit in that day was F/VL-071 “La Garenne de Chamilly”, the Activation Point lies in a forest, but there is same space not so wooded, a not perfect place to erect an antenna, but it worked. On this place i worked Italy and Switzerland on 40m, Spain and Croatia on 20m.


The Second Summit was FL/VL-056 “Mont Rome Ch√Ęteau”, this is a bald hill, very easy to install the antenna. Unfortunately no sun, otherwise i would have had a nice view over the region. This was the second activation today, i worked Austria, Czechia and Polska.
