SOTA Montagut EA3/TA-005
This time the summit was Montagut, in the north part of Tarragona province, its a easy summit, so I decide to go with some friends, from Reus its a 40 minuts car trip, and from the parquing area to the summit around 20 minuts.
The area its very beautiful, this was my first time in this area and sure will be back soon.
The equipment was the Yaesu FT-817 powered by solar battery and the antenna the Alexloop, I must to say that I am very happy with the result of this antenna, its very easy to install do not need counterpoise, and you can install in a photo tripod.
Its amazing what can you do with 5w and very small antenna, this time I only use 20m with CW and SSB QSOs, sometimes was very hard to me pickup some call from the cw pileups, lot of stations calling at sametime, but I had lot of fun.
The result was 37 QSOs with HB9, Z3, IT9, DL, EA, PA, G, ON, CT, HA, F, LA, GI, for a total of 13 DXCC not to bad for a less than a hour operation.
