KG6MZS SUMMIT ACTIVATION
7 NOVEMBER 2020 W6/CT-158
There isn’t much to say about the “hike” up this summit. You can park in the activation zone. A short walk past the locked gate to the right brings you up to a large level area with some burnt wooden poles that make good mast anchors. I chose a day when it was forecast to rain – the first winter storm of the year. The weather was cold, wet and miserable as expected. I made 5 contacts as my hands froze in a driving rain that was turning sleety. One was with Glenn KK6KEA in Green Valley who was surprised to hear anybody. He said they don’t even have cell service. Cell service from Verizon was good on this summit. Brian WA6JFK made contact just as I was bailing.
