SOTA Activation Secret Location @ SOTA Secret Location

This is a deep hike in a remote area with NO water so planning related to weather will determine if it’s a go or not.

Will work toward arriving and being setup by 0900 PST.  Track me on aprs.fi using KG6HQD while mobile and KG6HQD-7 once on the trail for real time ETA to summit.  Will spend 1 hour on summit and will work 20m & VHF 146.520 FM.  Message me on APRS for band requests with 40-10m SSB limits.
