Via Southgate: Tanzania update

Eugen, DL8AAI, who was active as 5H2JK/p during a hiking tour in Kilimanjaro National Park (5HFF-0005) this past week, posted the following update on

“Hiking in Kilimanjaro National Park is over. Climbing Kilimanjaro up to its top – Uhuru Peak, Africa’s highest point – was quite an adventure. Retrospectively, it was the right decision to save my energy for the physical challenge rather than trying to activate Uhuru peak. I leave this opportunity for younger and better trained SOTA activators!

486 QSOs were made from 5HFF-5 plus 263 QSOs from Moshi town. Today, was my last QSO #722 from Tanzania. I want to say “asante sana” (Thank you very much) to all of you for accompanying me on the radio during my hike.

Please be patient getting your QSL cards which have to be printed first. They will not be sent out before October…. CU, 73 de Eugen” QSL via DL8AAI.
