Gary/N5ANF and I scrambled up Mt Herman (9054’) on Black Friday for some QRP fun. Gary was operating his FT817 pedestrian mobile using his rather novel helically wound windom on a 9’ whip mounted on his pack frame with MFJ tunner which worked great! I was operating mtn-top portable with my IC703 and Buddipole vertical. Conditions were ok but we were still plagued with that deep QSB of late. We tried to operate on separate bands 20/17/15 but found desensing to be an issue as we were only 20yards from one another! So we took turns running the 17m SSB-HFpack. All in all us goats had a great time!
