I’m planning an activation of W1/GM-011.
I have read that the open summit of this mountain is an ecologically sensitive area and one must be very careful to only step on rock and not on the low waxy plants, grasses, mosses.
It is a sharply defined summit and as best as I can tell from google maps satellite view, the entire activation zone (4000’ contour) is inside this ecologically sensitive zone.
I will end up hopping from exposed rock to exposed rock and not stepping on plants/mosses but how does one get an antenna going in this kind of environment?
Normally I would tie off the antenna guys on rocks or if there is enough soil cover sink a few tent pegs. None of that will be possible on this summit, walking around to find guy points may not be possible and may be too damaging.
Anyone have any suggestions?
Can an exception be made to the 25m activation zone rule for some summits?
