After hiking up Mount Pinos I drove over to Frazier Mountain to meet my friends Brian WA6JFK and Scott WA9STI. I last drove up this mountain on July 3rd, 1989. The road seemed rougher than I remembered it from 31 years ago and the abandoned fire lookout was more decrepit (see photo above)
Scott had set up his KX3 with a 100 watt amp and generously let me use it on 17m for my first SSB SOTA contacts. What a great set-up! Brian and I also used Scott’s 1.2 GHz radio and beam to make contact with Jon K6LDQ in Torrance. This was my first time on 1.2 GHz. Thank you Scott!
