The view went from intensely colorful to perfectly colorless on this “May Gray” visit to 1,821′
14 MAY 2021 W6/CT-228
I left my house in Topanga at a quarter past five AM on a drizzly morning. The last time I headed for 1,821′, there had been a 21ºF gradient in Topanga Canyon. This time the deep marine layer kept the temperature within 2 degrees through the length and depth of Topanga Canyon. The sunrise was equally contrasted: last trip was a wild pallet of color, this trip was flat “May Gray.”
20 meters was in good shape, but I had no luck on the other bands. Florida was my furthest contact with John KI6EAB/W4, who was in California, but needed his remote station in Florida to hear me.
The lack of a view on this activation left me with taking shots of my station set up
