Here’s the official congrats to my friend Steve-K5SJC for becoming the 22nd Mountain Goat in the W0C!!!..Wait, scratch that, I mean the 5th Mountain Goat in the W5T!!! ;). Baaaaaa! Steve’s MG summit was Madonna Dome (W0C/SP-015) here in Colorado on August 24, 2023. Sorry I missed the chase! (stupid job).
And like a typical Texan, he’s waving his W5T flag a little higher than his W0C flag since he’s solidly planted his SOTA activation points in the W5T soil. You could have joined the CO team, but alas, I understand those loyalties are ingrained early on, even though you originally hail from Alaska Also, we’ll let those little excursions to W5O and W5A go since the vast majority of your GOAT points stem from CO summits. Regardless, it’s been great getting out with you on multiple activations and seeing the tenacity you had for planning and gettin er’ done during your summers here in CO. We know you boys don’t like the cold Congrats again brother! You deserve it. Cheers!
FYI, he’s the old guy in the pic
Always a pleasure to work you on SOTA (and POTA) - we have had quite a few QSOs in the past year. And thanks for the CW name ‘JOX’ - it is starting to catch on and I’ve been called that by a few other ops
73 and welcome to the herd.
FB Steve! I’m happy I could chase you on your MG summit! Baaaa!
Thanks for all the contacts.
73, Walt NE4TN
And thanks for all the FB QSOs!
Congrats Steve on succeeding at your Mountain Goat challenge. You are one of the most consistent and hardest working ops I know, and you have worked tirelessly to earn every point. Keep up the great work!

Congrats Steve! Mountain Goat in less than two years… WOW!
Stealing from the Cheers TV show… I think you should move to Colorado where “everybody knows your name” (and callsign).
