I persuaded Miriam to come on this easy walk up with me. On the way we stopped at Islip Saddle and saw what we figured was Chris K6CMG’s car because it was covered with antennas! Quite a long drive but a 10 minute walk up from the parking lot. She really enjoyed seeing what I do for my hobby! I operated FM and SSB voice modes, since watching someone do CW is kinda boring, particularly when you don’t know Morse Code. She enjoyed listening to the voice QSOs
Nice to have Ken KN6CCW come back right away on 2m FM. Chris K6CMG was also with his XYL, but not yet at the summit of Mt Williamson. Tried to put out a spot on the cell phone for 17m but it didn’t get through, so worked non-SOTA stations. At the end, heard Dan NA6MG mobile near Barstow coming back from activation of two desert peaks, and we had a QSO.
