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.
