A fieldday up on the Kitzsteinhorn (OE/SB-003) takes place every 2 years. Franz was there at the last weekend and took some pictures…Unfortunately on saturday just 4 OMs found their way up – hopefully some more on sunday? I remember there were about 15-20 HAMs two years ago and the other visitors were very interested in how our hobby works. OE2WNL and me (OE2ATN) could not to take part this year, but Franz activated “Top of Salzburg” together with OE2LSP successfully.
After some renovation of the cablecar top station the repeater was moved into a new part of the building shortly. The cablecar company liberally lets HAM RADIO benefit of the infrastructure up there. Many thanks to our repeater crew OE2FKM Manfred, OE7SPI Peter and OE7AOT Alex!
There are some really cool sights besides HAM RADIO as well if you want to come with your family next time! Visit the Kitzsteinhorn website. On your way up you will pass the highest cablecar rest in the world…
