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.
