Colorado 14er Event Update
Lots of stuff happening as people plan for the Colorado 14er Event (Aug 7 and 8).
Post your plans
We have quite a few people posting their plans in the database. Thanks!
This helps coordinate our efforts. See https://ham14er.groups.io/g/ham14er/table?id=31898
We have 5 activators planning to use 1.2 GHz on 9 different activations. And I've identified 5 chasers that have 1.2 GHz.
This should be fun.
It currently looks like this:
Unfortunately, more and more of our favorite mountains are subject to reservations to gain access. The latest one is Quandary Peak, which has limited parking with reservations required.
Rocky Mt National Park is operating on a reservation system.
Mt Evans Recreation Area requires reservations to gain access after 8 AM.
Be sure and check out the summit you plan to hike. This is another reason to pass on the popular/easier 14ers and choose a SOTA summit that is not quite so busy on a summer weekend.
Dan/KN0MAP pointed out to me that Pikes Peak has a bicycle race on Saturday, another complication. Access to the highway for the general public begins at 9 AM, which is kind of late.
Joyce/K0JJW and I still plan to activate it but we will get a late start, probably 10:30 to 11 AM at the summit.
