CN82 – I worked three stations from the high plains valley at 4000′ in the Siskyoos on 6m. It was cold.
CN92 – I worked two stations from a high ridge above Upper Klamath Lake at 6000′ on 6m. It was cold again. I worked a long time trying to reach Portland without success. Another 6dB from an amplifier would probably have helped.
Today – I’ll check another spot nearby (Mt Hagelstein) and then explore CN93 and find a good operating spot from among several candidates. I’m looking forward to meeting the pack train rescue mission and Rod.
Meteor scatter operation is not going to happen this trip, sorry. I need to rethink and redesign how a MS station will be setup in this truck. For now, it’s too ambitious for this trip.
Please track me on APRS and arrange contacts through the N5TM chat room. Use my “K7BWH Oregon” chat tab.
