Ryan Mountain (W6/CD-016) in Joshua Tree National Park

As some of you might know we have a National Parks event organized by the ARRL to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the US National Park Service. I took the opportunity to activate a SOTA peak (W6/CD-016) in Joshua Tree NP last Friday and in essence did a “double activation”. If interested in a few snaps and details read on at

Those views are so good they make want to go and book some holiday and buy a plane ticket. Thanks, for making me very jealous!


You are always welcome!!


Hello Paul,
And thanks for the nice PIX.
Inspiration Point will wait for you to come back and get it!


Thanks for the report! I was hoping to activate Ryan on NY day but was under the weather. Glad you had success. Any pics of the oak? Also I took Geology Rd once through Berdoo Canyon which was boulder strewn and kind of epic. Once was enough heh.

Well done and congratulations!!
