peak sign ups ? viewsheds.
K. Mark Caviezel
I am looking forward to this year's ham 14er event.
I am thinking about Castle Peak, near Aspen.
Is there a sign up roster so we don't all QSO each
other from within the parking lot on top of Pike's
Also, I've done some radio 'view shed' modelling with
Radio Mobile, an incredible freeware program that
predicts radio paths given power, antenna, and terrain
inputs. If you're considering a particular peak, I
can run that peak's viewshed so you can see who you
should be able to talk to.

I may attempt Longs Peak again this year, would be curious what it shows on 17M and 20M with portable dipole (estimated DBd -1) from a full size. 6M with portable Dipole, that would be approx. full size so should be 0 DBd but take into account would be not more than maybe 12 above ground on all these. possibly a 1/2 wave or a 1/4 wave duck for 2 and if i do same as last year would have a small beam for 70 cm, (18 elements if i recall correctly).
