Yes, thanks Matt. Reservations and $100 entry fee! I researched Culebra Peak last year. They don't start accepting reservations until the middle of May. Andrew KD5ZZK

Andrew, make sure you have a reservation for Culebra Pk. (you probably are aware of that).

Here's the after action report:

I wonder if something like this would work in Colorado?
Maybe target a Saturday afternoon and do some of the SOTA peaks near
Denver. Much less effort and less time than the 14er Event.
And we could do it in the "off season."

Any interest?

Rocky Mountain SOTA Rendezvous

Bob K0NR
 

Here's another event set to coincide with the Colorado 14er Event
(www.ham14er.org) on Sunday August 3rd.

Rocky Mountain SOTA Rendezvous

August 2 - 3

Fred/KT5X is taking a no-host , anybody-is-welcome to participate in the Colorado get together, including family, friends, Chasers, and Activators. There are many, many SOTA peaks in the Arkansas River valley area….so you don’t have to do only 14ers if you choose to activate. And a wonderful opportunity for Chasers to meet a bunch of the Activators. Great area to vacation with lots of family-oriented activities, great restuarants, etc.

See http://www.w0c-sota.org/event/rocky-mountain-sota-rendezvous/

rmvhf,
I'll be out hiking one of the easy summits near Estes Park today, doing a Summits On The Air activation on 2m. If you are around point your antenna that way.

I'll be on 144.200 SSB, 146.52 FM using FT-817 and 3 el Arrow yagi.
Not sure on the exact time, probably early afternoon 1 to 2 pm local?
You can check sotawatch.org for status.

Re: SOTA MG Rendevous and 14er Event

Bob K0NR
 

Thanks, Bryan.
Andrew, I think we talked about this last year: it would be great if someone would activate Longs Peak to attempt a Longs to Culebra contact.
That is the longest distance 14er to 14er contact possible in Colorado, and it has never been done. Like never ever.

Bob,
Where is the 14er summit list on here for us to post our planned 14er summit this year? Curtis KC5CW and I are going to attempt Culebra Peak W0C/SL-002. I had to cancel my trip to Colorado last year because my family chose to go elsewhere. Culebra Peak has still not been activated for SOTA or the 14er Event. I also plan to be in Colorado in the days before the 14er Event for the SOTA Mountain Goat Rendezvous. I haven't made an Alert list yet for the week, but Mount Herman and Pikes Peak are in the plans.

Looks like you dropped the ball for this domain :(
Did you contact the new registrant (Harold Urban)? Maybe he is willing to transfer the domain back to you?

Change in Colorado 14er Event web site

Bob K0NR
 

We had a problem with the 14er.org domain name, so the
Colorado 14er Event web site is now at:
http://www.ham14er.org

Please pass the word and update any URLs you have stored.

And get ready for August 3rd !!!!

Midland Hill SOTA Activation

Bob K0NR
 

I activated Midland Hill near Buena Vista yesterday for Summits On
The Air.

This would make a great SOTA hike during the Colorado 14er Event, with
lots of 14ers close by.

Front Range Activation (Sun Sep 8th)

Elliott
 

I wish I could be more specific, but I am part of a large group that is splitting up to cover Grays, Torreys, Evans, and Bierstadt, and I was told the placements are random. Nevertheless, I am excited to attempt my first 14er since getting my ticket. Because of the nature of the trip, I will only take my Yaesu triband HT and comet antenna (a few dBi of gain).

I will try to clarify, but I may not know until Saturday evening.

If you have VHF tips, I would be grateful. Also, if any of you are near Golden and willing to have company on a trip, please ask sometime.

Thank you,
Elliott Gordon

Re: trip report Castle Peak 14er / W0/WE-001 SOTA

Bryan
 

Hi Tom,

I was running 10W from my Elecraft KX3, into a LNR 10/20/40 EFHW antenna, mounted to a 24' carbon fiber fishing pole. I had the antenna matchbox/feed about 3' off the ground and connected to the radio with a 3' coax. The other end was tied off to a rock with some paraline, forming an inverted V antenna. The antenna sets up in a couple of minutes and works really well. It's also very light, weighing less than 1 pound, plus about 2 pounds for the radio and accessories.
