Hi, looking for a bit of advice here…
I will hopefully manage to get to the summit of this one in the next few weeks and wondered if it’s worth taking a rig.
Let me explain though, there is absolutely no chance of taking a beam of any sort, no chance of HF antennas and no way I can take a SLAB, so i’m stuck with a 2m handheld and a helical antenna.
Am I likely to make the required 4 contacts from here with this equipment on an un-announced mid week activation?
I am limited to what I can carry as I will be wild camping with a party of friends and will be carrying a tent, sleeping bag, food, etc for a week, so any excess weight is definitely not welcome, and would be frowned upon by the others in the party. Is it worth carrying the handheld or is it just excess baggage ?
Any thoughts from those who have been there ?
