Wow, what an event! 10 German alpine regions in 10 hours with one call sign DA20XOTA!

We have written a piece of history together and can be proud of it. Firstly, all German alpine regions were activated in 10 hours, and secondly, all 10 alpine regions with one call signDA20XOTA. Is there an association that has done something similar?

Everything went well and worked because the whole team played along and enjoyed it! The weather was good, the propagation conditions were fair at the beginning and end and weak with deep QSB around midday. The interest and demand were huge, so some activators continued to operate from their regions under their own call signs. Over 600 QSOs were logged on Friday, June 14th by 9 OPs.

The DA20XOTA show makers were:

08UTC: DL8MEK @ DL/BG-037

09UTC: DL2DVE @ DL/CG-116

10UTC: DD1LD @ DL/MF-072

11UTC: DL5AZZ @ DL/BE-073

12UTC: DM1DF @ DL/EW-021

13UTC: DF3MC @ DL/KW-008

14UTC: DJ2MX @ DL/WS-058

15UTC: DK7MG @ DL/AM-009

16UTC: DL3TU @ DL/AL-167

17UTC: DL2DVE @ DA/AV-198

It was fun! Thank you very much to everyone who made this possible and followed the sun with DA20XOTA!

Dear All,

On June 14th (June 15th initially planned) we will activate all 10 Alpine regions in SOTA-DL. We will start at 8:00 UTC with the BG region and end at 18:00 UTC with the AV region, following the sun from east to west. This is your chance to earn one or more DA20XOTA Awards in one day.

This is the first time that all German Alpine regions will be on the air within one day. If you would like to join us as a DA20XOTA operator, please drop a message to Andy, DL2DVE.
