K0NR - K0JJW SOTA Activations This Week


Bob K0NR
 

Our plan for "Colorado SOTA Week" is taking shape (Bob/K0NR and Joyce/K0JJW):
Thursday -  Double activation: Dicks Peak (W0C/FR-041) and Unnamed 10090 (W0C/SP-101), both south of Hartsel (I don't know why Dicks is in the FR region).
Friday - Mount Chapman (W0C/SP-043)
Saturday - Unnamed 12792, also known as Buzz Light Year (W0C/SP-042) near Cottonwood Pass
Sunday - Mount White (W0C/SR-021), a 13er near Mount Antero
Our standard equipment list will include 2m FM, 70 cm FM and 23 cm FM (1.2 GHz).
We can add in 1.25m FM and 6m / 2m SSB if there's going to be activity.
The standard calling frequency for 23 cm is 1294.5 MHz.

I’ll have 2m ssb on some summits in NM. 
I’m packing up now. Will leave today or tomorrow depending on how I feel. 

Quick question Bob. I have a 2.4G yagi. Would it be usable/more effective on my 1.2G radio than the rubber duck? It’s a multiple but not sure that’s good enough to be usable.

We are working our way towards the San Juans this week so Saturday is TBD. It will be 2m FM only. Looking forward to it!  We’ll be driving all week and monitoring 146.52 as we drive from Steamboat towards the SW corner so pls try that freq if you are summiting.

Probably not.

Curtis,
Post an alert with 2m ssb indicated and if we are doing an easy one, I'll bring along the FT-817 for 2m ssb/cw.
Thursday and Friday will probably work OK.
