20M and 40M were dead today

2015-06-29 around 1500.

I just made, what I considered to be a very treacherous climb (the way down was worse, tore up a good pair of jeans…another story) and once I set up…nothing. I tried both 20M and then 40M and did not hear a soul. I finally moved over to 10M and got the required contacts (thank you all, you saved my bacon).

The trail goes right between 2 summits and I was going to try to do them both, but after almost getting skunked, the temp getting over 100 and humidity too, I figured I would save the other one for tomorrow or another day.
