W6/SS-285 – Bald Mountain

This was my first activation in the Southern Sierras; quite a bit of a drive from my QTH, but it made a fun day with my wife. The station was setup off the side of the summit on a picnic table. I only made two contacts on 2M (one S2S) and two on 20M. 40M was simply not working. Either my station was in a terrible position, or propagation simply wasn’t working in my favor.


Total distance: 4.38 mi

2M S2S with W6RIP. 155.2 miles is very good.
