I climbed MT beacon NY, roughly 1600 feet of elevation and successfully activated the summit for my first activation.

Its not about some contest, or the number of contacts or how many watts you can push out. To me its about having fun with the Ham Radio hobby, being active and staying that way. What better way to do that, then hiking and ham radio. I was running a measly 2.5 watts on 2meter FM and managed to make a contact over 60 miles away.. Bet you cant do 60 miles from your shack running lots of power when your in a valley or terrain affects your signal.


All in all I had a great time. As with everything I do heres the video link =)

Being posted in the Elmers section, there must be a question somewhere in this post....
