A nice hike today with Dan (NA6MG) and Bob (K6TUY). We met up at Eaton Saddle and began our walk at about 0630 or so. Chilly with high clouds, a beautiful sun rise. The Los Angles basin was covered by low clouds.
It was rather chilly, I should have worn my wool shirt rather than a cotton one. If there had been plenty of sunshine I would not have felt the chill. But the clouds and mountains looked very beautiful.
I brought the IC-706 so that I could operate SSB, here I am on the microphone. I also operated 20 meter CW.
20m SSB: W0MNA WN6E N7CNH KI0G K6SSS KA5PVB W7CNL
20m CW: K7SO KE5AKL WA6RIC NS7P WA2USA/4 W4DOW AA5CK N0EVH W7CNL
Congratulations to Dow for making 5000 chaser points today!
Sounding a bit like a broken record: another Nike base. This is Mt. Disappointment below us which was the Nike radar station site for LA-09. Mt. Josephine (L) and Strawberry Peak (R) in the middle distance.
A nice hike down. After our drive down the Angeles Crest Highway we stopped for some delicious Tacos at “El Charro” in Montrose. Bob’s wife Bunny met up with us there. A great day!
