Anyone in the W1/W2/W3 or beyond interested in a SOTA party in the Adirondacks at some point in 2018? I’m currently in talks with 2 other hams about the idea of doing a weekend long trip to at least 5 summits. It appears that quite a few of the 46 high peaks remain unactivated. The beauty in terms of SOTA up there is the close proximity of the high peaks to each other, meaning if there are multiple activations VHF is a real possibility even with just an HT, as is plenty of glorious 10 point S2S action.
At this point I’m looking for interested parties, with the goal of divvying up the high peaks on a weekend to be named in 2018. Imagine filling your log with 10 point S2S contacts from the top of Marcy, Algonquin, Colden, Cascade, or Big Slide. If enough people are interested, camping for the weekend could be organized at a state campground to allow for a greater sense of camaraderie and some eyeball QSOs.
The Adirondack High Peaks vary in difficulty from moderate to very difficult, but there are a few easier options. Obviously W2/GA is not exclusive to the high peaks and there are many other summits in the association with easier hikes that still afford a view of the high peaks, and therefor VHF opportunities.
So if you have any interest, please let me know via a reply here or to my private email.
