A group of us are planning to activate Mount Herman on Saturday...for Summits On The Air and the January VHF Contest.
The radio crew includes Steve WG0AT, Caleb W4XEN, Bob K0NR and Joyce K0JJW and maybe a goat or two.
The contest starts at noon, so we should be on the air about then. We probably won't last much longer than 4 pm, weather dependent.
*For SOTA, Mt Herman is W0C/FR-063 http://www.sota.org.uk/Summit/W0C/FR-0*63* <http://www.sota.org.uk/Summit/W0C/FR-06>
We will be active on 2m and several HF bands, depending on propagation. Check for spots on sotawatch.org
*The contest starts at noon local time and the exchange is grid locator, DM79 for Mt Herman.
