In this video we traverse an easy walk up a wide dirt road toward the summit. You start by crossing the gate seen in the video because of the quarry but after that it’s a short and easy hike to the summit. There are trees along the way obviously but limited shade for the most part. The snow covering wasn’t an issue and the cell coverage was great.
For fun we had a little Yaesu FT-817ND vs Elecraft KX2 competition that just happened. In all honesty it was more of an antenna issue, but it was fun having the setup that worked.
