Nice pictures, Bruce. How to tell the real ham operators? With an incredible vista out to > 100 miles in 270 degrees (including that one towards French Meadows behind them), they face the rocks :-) .. now that’s dedication!

Hi Everybody,

Here is a recap of the W6EK Team effort for the September VHF Contest.  Our station was located at the Duncan Peak Lookout on Little Bald Mountain at the end of Foresthill Road.  At 7,200 ft elevation we could see the coastal range and vast areas of the Sacramento and San Jaoquin Valleys.  We logged contacts as far away as Redding, Cuppertino, Merced, Reno, and Lake Topaz.  A special note, the Cuppertino contact was on 446.000!!

Thank you to Jeff, KM6RGO, and Glenn, KM6RGQ, who helped out at the mic.

We had an absolute fabulous time!  We especially enjoyed everyone who dropped by to visit.  

Mark your calendars for October 5-6, 2019, for the California QSO Party.  That will be the next BIG contest adventure.  Hope to see you all there!!
