As the 1st SUBREGIONAL VHF CONTEST is coming next weekend I am preparing for it.The big problem is the snow into the road which drives you to the contest site. As my friend Kostas SV2ESR checked this weekend it seems that 500m before the site the snow is up to 50cm and it is very difficult for any jeep. Anyway if the weather will be good i will try it by foot as the equipment that I have to carry is my FT-847 my small linear and my laptop.I hope the antennas are still on place hi. CU IN THE CONTEST
