HB/ZH-017 is on my way home after work and was on my plan for a long time. 5 June 2013 was a nice warm day and I drove to the car park and enjoyed the short hike to the “top”. QSO wise I managed 14 QSO on 30m and then tried 20m withouth success although I was spotted by RBN. On 17m I baged 1 local QSO and finally I gave 12m a try which added another 5 QSO to the total including a S2S QSO with HB9BCB/p on HB/BE-111.
