This weekend (08 – 10.06.2012) I will try to activate the Caraiman Peak in Carpathian mountains: 2384 meters high, KN25RK locator, code YO/MC-015 and rated 10 points in the SOTA list. It is famous for the “Caraiman Cross”  – a huge illuminated monument built after World War I visible from very far, as well as for the weird-looking rock formations called “Babele” (The Old Ladies) and “Sfinxul” (The Sphynx).

Equipment used will be K-PO DX 5000 transciever at 20W output, quad loop antenna (also known as “Bamby”) and 12V / 7.2Ah rechargeable battery; main working frequency will be 27.515 MHz and secondary will be 27.655 MHz, both in USB. Callsign for this activation is 233RC/MC015, activated and managed by me 233RC103 – George; for info pls email [my_callsign]@gmail.com.
