After hearing about the 10 Point Madness event in the Arizona organization, I decided to activate a tall one with decent points and was rewarded by a personal best 18 summit-to-summit contacts
After the west ridge had been deemed outside the activation zone, I return to do “Buzzard’s Roost” proper.
A misty morning return to a local favorite.
The best part of this activation was working Martha W0ERI and Gary W0MNA summit-to-summit!
The antenna leads gave me a pretty good shock off my 40m doublet, so I work UHF/VHF only on these two summits.
A mountain bike trip up La Jolla Peak to finish off all of the Santa Monica Mountains and adjacent summits.
A short and steep hike on a cloudy Wednesday morning.
Brian WA6JFK and I have a big day on Pacifico Mountain.
A recon of the area leads to an activation (sort of)
An easy hike turns more difficult when the road gets rough.
