Hi folks, I’ll be heading up Mt. Rainier (4,392m) in Washington this weekend, thankfully with another ham this time! We hope to make the summit around midday on Saturday, June 16. With any luck the battery problems I’ve had with my FT-817 will be resolved and I’ll be able to run the full 5W on 20m and 40m. We’ll also be taking advantage of the prominence to try some VHF work into Seattle, Vancouver, and Portland (see projections below.) Depending on where we stand we may have decent coverage East of the mountain as well! If we have time we may step over to Liberty Cap (W7W/RS-002) to try and bag the first activation.
