As I will be at Dayton (Xenia) next year, I was thinking whether I could fit in an activation (as all good SOTA adicts do). As I will be with a group of Hams who are not directly interested in SOTA, the summit needs to be an easy, quick activation. Looking at this summit it appears to be a “drive-up” summit.
My question is - what’s the simplex 2m / 70cm coverage like in this area, being the highest point in Ohio, I’m hoping it’ll be good. My hope would be to activate just on 2m or 70cm simplex with a HT and RH770 whip antenna. Otherwise bringing the full HF kit from Europe would be difficult.
