Beacon Rock, WA W7W/LC-163 - Beautiful unique summit along Columbia River Gorge

This summit was on my must do list this year, and while windy during a summer evening…it turned out to be a great activation on 40m band using KX2 and Wolf RIver Coil vertical antenna. It was the first summit I really appreciated having a vertical antenna due to small summit area on a popular tourist summit viewpoint. Highly recommend the summit, and stopped many times along the trail to enjoy the views! 73, James WA7JNJ

That’s cool! Well done.

That vertical was so close to the guard rail, you must have had that radiating too!
