I’m looking to do a SOTA activation or two on my trip to the Adirondacks next week. I plan on activating either W2/GA-013, W2/GA-021, W2/GA-022, or W2/GA-279.
All 4 mountains have fire towers on the summit, all of which are fully open to the public. I have been up Snowy before and have a general idea of what the fire towers are like. However I’ve never set up an antenna on one. If figure for the extra free height it would be worth it to try.
Radio is the MFJ 9200, antenna tuner is the QRPGuys EFHW tuner (same design as the hendricks kit). I have wire cut for 20 and 40m.
I’m guessing just hanging wire off the side of the cab is not going to work, as the wire will be dangling within inches of the metal structure. Has anyone done this and have any suggestions?
