I went up to Pikes Peak on Sunday with KK6JQV. This was my first time doing this and I wasn’t really all that prepared. Still, it was really fun, and I was quite pleased with just how well my handheld worked from up there, even just using the standard "rubber duck” that came with it. I was active from about 9:30 to 11:30, and made 5 contacts (four that weren’t on pikes peak). After that we bailed to avoid a somewhat ominous looking cloud approaching from the west.
