Stony VE6/JF-084 - A Destination Wedding Proposal


#1

Please note the updated SOTA Ref (mislabeled my GPX)

First let me emphasize this was not my transport to Stony VE6/JF-084 2136 M / 7008 ft.

However just as I was about to push up my 30ft antenna pole the helicopter dropped down 50 yards from my location.
The pilot later apologized saying he did not see me. He was also startled that I had managed to navigate to this pathless summit.

Kind of hard to miss a bright orange blob on a snowy white landscape.

However all was forgiven as out jumped a couple to do their wedding proposal complete with champagne and professional photographer.

Very cute and FB.
After shaking hands with the bridegroom I pushed up my inverted V for 20m and quickly completed 10 QSO.

Spectacular day, many thanks to VE6IXD for his gpx track

Really cool story and something you don’t see on a summit every day.
