I feel the urge to revisit all the SP summits this year. The G/SP region contains many of SOTA’s most activated summits and I am the Region Manager so it’s time to do them again. I will go for 2m SSB as my main mode. It’s a lot of fun and not main-stream.
I started today on Gun G/SP-013. It’s a nice little hill and I had an enjoyable activation. Thanks to all the callers, I appreciated each QSO. I’m using a new FT-817 (I bought it as a spare a while ago) and I was interested to see if the internal battery lasted long enough. The good news it that it was fine for a single activation. I think using the internal battery limits the radio to 2.5 Watts so maybe I will use an external battery on some summits. I have a really light 2m amplifier and a bigger beam too. Let’s see how it goes!
Catch you on 2m SSB soon?
