EA6/MA-080 (Puig de sa Font)



18/May/2017    EA6/MA-080 (Puig de sa Font)

Puig de sa Font near Son Servera

This is a fairly easy summit, located in the village of Son Servera, in the North-East of Mallorca.
I had the chance to do another first activation here.
There is ample parking space next to a school at 39.618217, 3.355557
(Note : you may have to ignore some "forbidden" signs to get there, like I did (only local traffic 'con tarjeta' allowed normally, just pretend you don't understand , hi)).

Go left before this wall, then right, following the gutter
A man walking his dog told me to take the path to the left because it was a paved rain gutter, and he was right. Walking this path was much easier than taking the dirt track running parallel to the gutter.
After a while the gutter ends, and from there, there is only one path to the top.
Following a couple of "stone man" indicators, the summit (pos 39.614869, 3.352544) was reached after less than 20 minutes.

Easy walking in the rain gutter ... as long as it doesn't rain !

There were a couple of radio towers on the summit, with solar panels providing the power. I had a lot of noise on all bands, and I suppose it came from the solar panel regulators, so try to set up as far from the towers as you can. 

Noise sources on the summit ...

Despite all the noise, I managed to make 31 QSO's ... mission accomplished !

My fishing pole against a beautiful sky ... can you spot the endfed wire ?
