Soloing this thing I just wasn’t inclined to do the last 15 feet. :wink:

At least a thousand feet off either side

Hi Eric,
Thanks for the report with beautiful pictures.
You wrote that those who heard you through the webSDR service were not valid contacts, but they are valid and you can include them perfectly in your SOTA activation log.
I hope this will let you get the 4 minimum QSOs for you to get the 10 activator points.

It’s actually been done in that time. I think 80 hours is the record, but, no, not us old guys. It will take us considerably longer. Next segment is Tuolumne to Yosemite Valley. Look for us on Half Dome next at the beginning of August.

Congratulations on the activation, Eric. That’s some tough luck getting only one QSO.

ZL4RZ threw down the best views gauntlet.
I’d say you are giving him a run for his money. Jaw dropping images.

Slightly under 70 hours for the 230 or so miles but no SOTA in those records.
