What's the procedure to activate a summits?
There are several in Massif Central area not so far to me. Can I go with my FM VHF/UHF walkie talkie?
Something special to validate QSOs?

@F1RUM
Just climb up and try it! You can find the rules at sota.org.uk
It's quite easy, but it is important to make an announcement (alert/self-spotting) before starting the trail. 2m may be working, however, there are no guarantees. #SOTA

@_hensys_ ok, thanks for information. There are 5 summit at less than 10km from home ! and many if I extend the area. 2m is not a very good idea. I think I have to acquire some HF qrp equipment 🙂

@F1RUM
Well, there are summit activators who are specialized in working 2m. I'd suggest then to use a directional antenna.
