VE6/RA-014 Prairie Mountain

So today I did my 2nd CW activation and on VE6/RA-014 and it was a huge success, I stuck to 40m cause I was unsure of doing a 20m pile up :grin:, I just want to say a huge thank you to the chasers you guy’s make it so much less stressful with your patience.

The hike up was a butt kicker 3087 feet of vertical gain in 2.3 miles but the view was absolutely worth it.

We had winter weather roll in over the Rockies to the West and to the East it stayed clear for a couple more hours before the snow started falling, I manged to get activated and down before the storms hit but it definitely was a eye opener that winter is on our doorstep here In Canada.

Good idea, Jesse! Not too many SOTA VE6s on CW. I checked my log and have 174 VE6 total SOTA QSOs and only 18 of them are on CW.
