N0TA Achieves Mountain Goat!


#1

On June 23, 2017, N0TA, John, activated W7Y/EW-020, Ring Mountain, in Southeastern Wyoming, and achieved Mountain Goat Status.

I have been on numerous joint activations with John, and I can say he has genuinely earned his MG points! We have covered some amazing terrain in Colorado!

On June 23, John was with K0FTC, also John, on Ring Mountain. I had the pleasure of contacting both of them S2S on 14 MHz CW, across about 60 miles of high, mountainous terrain, from W0C/PR-109, Apiatan Mountain. Signals were strong, despite the non-line-of-sight path.

I wish John success as he continues to activate some of the best SOTA peaks available to us!

Well done, John. You put out a consistently strong signal and beginner goats would do well to copy your antenna setup…de bill w4hbk

Congrats John! You’ve activated an amazing number of peaks this past year. I’ve enjoyed chasing you when I can hear you which is sometimes tough being so close. I know you’ll continue to activate peaks here in Colorado for many years to come OM.
