This weekend is the ARRL September VHF Contest. It is a fun low key contest that anyone with a 2m/440 radio can participate in.
Brian and I have Clyde's permission to use the W6EK callsign for the contest. We also have permission from the Forest Service to operate at the Duncan Peak Lookout!! This promises to be an awesome location with line of sight to the coastal range, north towards Redding, and south towards Stockton. From here, you can hit our repeater with an HT using 1 watt.
Everyone is welcome to join us. Duncan Peak Lookout is only 45 minutes from Auburn at the end of Foresthill Road. FREE RV & tent camping is available at the Robinson Flat Campground a very short distance away. Come for a few hours or the whole week.
We plan to run Multi-Operator Limited. We will have at least two radios going and four antennas up: 2m 12 element Yagi, 2m/440 X50 vertical, 2m J-Pole, 6m Inverted V.
If you plan on coming, we'll save you a seat.
Brian, AI6US, and Orion, AI6JB
