Re: K0NR and K0JJW 2017 Colorado 14er Event

from KD0YOB, Peter

Greetings, all! I did a long (for me) and rewarding hike in the Never Summer Wilderness Saturday and a shorter easier hike Sunday.  I hiked Cascade Mountain (W0C/FR-059, 12300 ft) Saturday and Poison Ridge (W0C/FR-087, 11417 ft) Sunday, both in north central Colorado. I got a late start both both days, which limited the number of Colorado contacts I made. Setting up for HF Saturday, there was the sound of static on my rig when I first turned it on that I attributed to the dark cloud overhead. I was prepared to break things back down and get off the summit quickly, but fortunately the static went away after less than a minute and I was able to spend three hours with fairly nice weather. It was good to make contact with Jeff, N0XDQ, both days. Post-event, I'm thinking of ways for more contacts on more bands next year, and maybe even making it up a 14er.

73,
Peter
