Punta Migliarello TK/TK015 - 2254 m asl - JN42MD81
Monte d'Oro - TK/TK-007 2389 m asl - JN42ND12

Very long hiking if both summits are done the same day !
The start can be done at different places at the "Col de Vizzavona" 1100m and follows the famous GR20. Follow the red/white marks until you reach the pass "Bocca di Muratello" at 2020m asl where you leave the GR20 and aim the summit of "Punta Migliarello" TK-015 azimut SW.
Follow the cairns along the ridge and the summit is easy to reach at 2254 m. The summit is flat and grassy and allows all sort of antennas and even overnighting with a tent.

Nice hike with a very nice view from the summit and a beautiful cross on top. About 13 km long and + 1000m climbing.
I started from the parking along the road close to the "Païsone d'Aïtone". The path is rather tricky to follow, too many stones showing different directions, more specificaly in the forest.
My tracks seems to be the safest way to reach the summit.

Not too much activity and some QRN led to only 20 QSOs with 2 S2S.

Short walk to this summit but very steep, +420 m for 1,5 km...
33 QSOs from which 7 S2S, all on 40 m CW !  CW rocks !!
A log sheet was blown away by the wind and stayed in the air for about 5 minutes, went very high above me and had the good idea to fall down only a few meters away...

This summit is the highest point of the north rim of the Gulf of Ajaccio. It is a easy one as it is on a very popular track "Le sentier des crêtes", the crest road which follows the coastline from the city center to the slopes of Sanguinaires. Lasting three hours, this path is accessible to everyone, and offers exceptional views of the coast, plunging views balcony above the sea. This path allows a botanical discovery of the natural environment in mountain.

TK/TK-162 Monte Sant'Angelo

This summit has been added to the SOTA list a week ago and is now probably the easiest summit for me...
A communication tower is on top of it, and when you're there you understand why ! It is in the middle of the gulf  and of the industrial and urban zone.

The top is flat and can be reached by car or bike.

I made my best results so far from this summit. Was it due to good conditions or good location, the future will say.
I made 49 QSO and a few S2S, all on 40 m CW. I will be back with more bands.
