Thanks for your incredible activation from Chief Mountain at 3569 M in early March!
I saw your alert just before I left my house this morning. I grabbed my microphone and wondered if my new KX2 would work on SSB - I had never even tried it, except on CW, nor had I read that part of the manual!
Then in the middle of my own activation with N0TA of Bald Mountain W0C/PR-114, while I was looking directly at snowy Chief Mountain, I tuned around the high end of 20M, and suddenly heard your voice, loud and clear from only 6 miles away - perfect line of sight!
You had just made your fourth contact, for MG! I just called “Summit to Summit”, and instantly you came back, and we did a quick S2S contact. It was your first contact of your next 1000 activator points, and it was my very first SSB contact as an activator on any summit!
You really sounded great up there!
As I logged our contact, I looked down at my homebrew tuner, and saw that I had left it in “Tune” mode by mistake - meaning that I was only transmitting about 1.5 watts!
Congratulations and wish you the best! You’re in a good herd of Mountain Goats here in Colorado!
