operation from Cave Mt, NV in DM29 proved to be not too bad considering it was
just a few days prior to the peak of the Perseids shower. Our main goal was to
operate MS on 6 and 2 meters and give DM29 to as many as we
distance 1877 miles
distance 1291 miles
contact from the mountain was Ed N5JEH on 6 meters followed shortly by Stan
K7JIZ for the first 2 meter contact. Due to all of the commercial gear on the
peak we elected to operate from a quieter location slightly lower than the main
peak. Our actually elevation was 10,533 feet with a clear shot in all directions
except due south which was the main peak. We were far enough away though that it
wasn't an obstacle really.
On the way
to the site Jim W6OUU gave DN20 to Robert KR7O while Jim KS7S and I gave DM27 to
Dianna KB6NAN and Jay K0GU. We also gave DM28 to Jay. On the return trip we were
again watching for possible contacts with Robert, Dianna and Bill W5WVO but we
had no success unfortunately.
everyone who took the time to look for us.
