W2/GA-027 Activation Attempt Oh Well... I tried :

Well I made it up Pillsbury Mountain, but the weather turned nasty at the top. I tried a quick few calls on 2M SSB, with no luck. As I was contemplating how I was going to get the inverted V up in the wind, I started hearing thunder… The cloud cover was getting rather thick and very dark, along with the possibility of lightning.
I figured it was time to leave the summit and return another day to complete the activation… I guess better luck next time.
I uploaded a video to youtube … http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vpl5la_N8bk
