Congrats Bill! :beers:

We have had many QSOs, but here is the one that was most memorable. It was 1st of Feb, 2020. WW7D and I went up to Pyramid Peak (W7W/CW-050) in a blizzard. It was 50+ MPH wind, snowing sideways, and well below zero with wind chill. We arrived on summit and didn’t much feel like putting up HF in a blizzard, so we pulled out an H/T and started calling CQ. We got an S2S with you - you were on W7O/NC-090. We never in a million years expected to get a 2m S2S with Oregon on a terribly stormy winter day, but there you were. We were able to get the activation done on 2m and get back down the mountain. There were tons of trees down across the road we drove in on, and we passed a forest service truck that had crashed in to a tree that was partially blocking the road. It was a wild day!

Look forward to many more S2S QSOs with you in the future.
