I’m Gary, NA6O (ex- WB9JPS). I discovered SOTA a few years ago on a visit to Santa Fe where I met K1JD and KT5X. I’m mostly a contester, and 98% CW. Now that I’m retired, it’s much easier to catch you guys mid-day. My antennas are very limited, so most SOTA contacts are as challenging as rare DX, which is really fun. I am quite amazed at the remote and challenging locations many of you have activated. I’m not a big hiker, but the idea of activating a relatively easy location is tempting. Besides, it’s an excuse to try a QRP rig. 73 and CU on the bands.
