DM/BW-845 – Hummelskopf – 867m – 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.
