Hiking in Kilimanjaro National Park is over. Climbing Kilimanjaro up to its top -Uhuru Peak, Africa’s highest point- was quite an adventure. Retrospectively, it was the right decision to save my energy for the physical challenge rather than trying to activate Uhuru peak. I leave this opportunity for younger and better trained SOTA activators!

486 QSOs were made from 5HFF-5 plus 263 QSO from Moshi town. Today, 20.8.22 was my last QSO #722 from Tanzania. I want to say “asante sana” to all of you for accompanying me on the radio during my hike.

Please be patient getting your QSL cards which have to be printed first. They will not be send out before October.
