DM/BW-168 – Grashalde – 916m – 10 Points

To build up my activator score I planned another SOTA hopping day: DM/BW-195 -> 074 -> 168 -> 057 -> 845 -> 156 -> 157 -> 159. The direct road between DM/BW-057 and DM/BW-156 was closed in Öfingen and the detour allowed to add DM/BW-845. I left home at 05:00 local time and drove to DM/BW-195 and worked my way back towards HB9. This was the first dry day after a big rainfall. This weekend coincided with the IARU Region 1 Field Day in CW and since I am a FD adjudicator I decided to hand out some FD QSO in the morning on 40m and 20m and in the afternoon I worked on 30m and 17m for the SOTA chasers.

    If you take the next road (100m East of your car park) there are no signs at all preventing you from driving all the way up. The road is on the rough side but I did it twice – without 4WD. Never met anybody along the way.
