Hey all, I’m planning on activating Mt. Lincoln early Saturday morning. It’s my first activation so I have a very loose plan.
- Climb mountain
- Do radio things
- Go home
This will be my 6th 14er, so I have the mountaineering part handled. I need plans for the SOTA side of things.
I have a handheld Baofeng, a cool beam antenna and access to 2m and 70cm. I won’t be able to throw signals to Siberia, so I need some local chasers.
Activation points do not stack with multiple bands do they? I will still only receive 10 points if I do contacts on 2m AND 70cm, correct? And if that’s the case, could I do some contacts on 2m, and the rest on 70cm, or do I have to keep the bands consistent?
I could probably hit Denver, Springs, Breck, Pueblo, and possibly Fort Collins. Any chasers vaguely near those areas who want some juicy 14er points, let me know, we can make a plan and show that mountain who’s boss.
