If you are out hiking this weekend, give a listen on 2M and 6M.
If you only have 2M FM, use the 14er calling frequency of
147.42 MHz. You will need to know what grid you are in.
I will be active from one of the hills west of
Monument, monitoring 147.42 MHz. I would appreciate a contact from
anyone within simplex range.
