Here’s the station on the summit of the actual highest of the intriguingly-named Lovejoy Buttes
9 JANUARY 2022 W6/ND-323
After doing Parker Mountain I was still feeling up for some hiking so I headed out to do the Lovejoy Buttes. This activation had been by fall-back plan if Parker was too windy. The NOAA forecast for this area was much more moderate.
A note of warning to anyone attempting to activate the Lovejoy Buttes. The plural “buttes” is the watchword. Gaia GPS and others mark the summit on a butte that is lower and about a mile to the east of the actual activation zone’s high point.
This erroneous summit does have a nice picnic table and gas grill (see photo below).
As billed the summit wasn’t as windy and I had a nice time activating with 3 S2S contacts.
