HB/ZH-015 – Altberg – 629m – 1 Point

Altberg ist the 2nd closed SOTA hill to my home-QTH and I was up there several times but never brought a radio with me. For this activation I parked on the West side of Altberg and walked up to point 626 where I setup my rig. Altberg is the most activated hill in HB9 and therefore I chose 12m, the least activated band, and detoured for two additional S2S QSO to 30 and 40m.
