Six by Six, simply means; climb a 6,000’ or higher summitand activate it on 6 meters.
We want to see if the “Magic Band” is really magical.
We have club members who will be activating, and chasing, many for the first time.
If you want to join in but you can’t travel to the Bitterroot Valley, then acivate a summit nearbyand let’s summit to summit.
Chasers dust off those 6-meter rugs and antennas and chase us!
At 6 p.m., on Friday, September 16th we will have a meet and greet at the Higherground Brewery in Hamilton, Montana.
Fall is the best time to be in the mountains, so get out there.
