I race to this second summit of the day to catch a summit-to-summit with NM5S back on Ortiz Mountain.
I had the great good fortune to meet two local hams and one of the top New Mexican SOTA Goats on this return to the Land of Enchantment.
Fantastic fun was had on this winter ascent during the wildly successful Winter SOTAfest.
After climbing the summit that my Gaia GPS listed as the Lovejoy Buttes, SOTAgoat said the actual highpoint was a mile to the west.
Despite a windy forecast I brave this blustery summit.
I return to a local favorite to try out my new APRS capabilities and I get treated to a QSO with S57S in Slovenia among others.
A joyous frenzy of summit-to-summit contacts on the Zulu New Year – and my 99th and 100th SOTA activations!
A muddy walk in between drenching winter storms
I was going to do Parker Mountain near Acton, but a high wind forecast sent me into the Chino Hills
Dodging all manner of gunfire, I activate this desert summit.
