CU3/OR1G - Day5

And so my final day on this little Island arrived.

After a wonderful breakfast in the harbor I've enjoyed making several contacts from my base before breaking down the station.
The station had worked pretty well and now all of the equipment had to be cleanly organised if not they would never all enter my suite case :-)

CU3/OR1G - Day4

Time to go a little higher, having a rental car I've crossed the Island heading towards Serra de Santa Barbara at 1021m ASL.

The weather wasn't prefect though, although the day started of quite sunny, it was especially windy. It didn't bother me too much, mixed with the sunny moments it kind a felt like a nice day but I would soon learn it wasn't ...

CU3/OR1G - Day3

Although the weather didn't improve to the point of tropical sun, at least the heavy rain stopped.

Time to discover the world of SOTA! Heading towards 'monte do brasil' a name this mountain received before Brasil was actually discovered.
With a mixed sun and rain climate I've managed to get reasonalby dry to the top of CU/TE004 where the SOTA point is actually what used to be a Signal station, first for visual and later RF telegraphy.

The right spot to test my elecraft K1 !
