VHF SOTA Challenge @ Sunset Ridge W6/CT-022
Jul 28 @ 5:00 am – 12:00 pm

In my most recent live stream on YouTube I suggested people use what they have and start SOTA; that includes HT only operations.  On this activation I’ll be bringing two HT’s and a few antenna systems to show how just a slight improvement in antenna setups can make a huge difference.  I am expecting some RFI due to the many radio towers on this summit, but again, I’ll show you how to work around those issues to have a successful activation.

YouTube Live Stream – How to Select a SOTA Summit @ KG6HQD YouTube Channel
Aug 13 @ 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm

I’m going to show you how I plan my SOTA activations starting with selecting a suitable summit.  I’ll cover the logistics involved and how I determine goals and time lines to help the chasers know where and when I’ll be “on-air”.  I’ll discuss weather related factors and of course when to bring Tahyo or leave her at home.
