Was driving The Bradshaw Trail and decided to do a SOTA. Was great and a bit challenging. I need to learn how to spot using CW. My KX2 will store CW strings I think.
Beautiful country and epic views. Top is just a knife edge of boulders really. Took some imagination to get an end fed up on 40m without a mast. You can hit a few linked repeater systems from there in emergency- namely DARN 14 on Toro Peak and Cactus on Chuckwalla. Cell service is spotty at the top. No trail.
40m EFHW 66’ and a 10W Elecraft KX2
