W6S now QRT

Unable to endure another night of punishing winds combined with sub-freezing temperatures, John(KI6NN) and I decided to strike the W6S station and head for home.
Less than ideal band conditions, multiple gear failures, and harsh weather made operation a challenge, but we managed 23 hours QRV and well over 100 QSOs.
Thanks to all who called, spotted, and wished us well. Thanks to the SOTA family for a great event.

In reply to WG0AT:

Well, I waited on “my” mountain for the first goat spot. Then I tuned to your frequency, but sadly nothing heard.
