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.

Click link for PDF of my planned route up to Bare Mountain.  I am planning to hit this one very early so I can work HF on the grey line.  Watch my Twitter feed for updates and I’ll post and alert in SOTAwatch as soon as I depart the home QTH.  May have an antenna shoot out too .. “HQD” Speaker Wire vs K9ARV linked dipole with only the 20m section affixed so it’ll be two 20m dipoles in an inverted vee configuration and we shall see if there is a performance difference.
