I'll be around Chris. Let me know what time-frame and I'll be sure to monitor.



We will be simplex 146.52 going up. If it gets too busy we go to my commercial lowband freqs. But breakfast at 8:45 in Aberdeen. Then about an hour to the site from there.

The new receiver will go online immediately. The heliax part of the job might take a tad longer. But we will look for ya. :)

There will be another trip to Gold Mt to do the same. Receiver is weak and I believe the heliax got wet when the connector came apart over last winter. When we go Im going to haul a reel up and replace it if needed and be done with maintenance for a while.

Ill let you all know before that trip happens. Its a bit closer.

We were on 6.52 for the whole trip up and down to the asphalt.

Pored some green water out of the center conductor of the heliax that had been sitting there in the bend to the building for over 14 years. Thats from when we had the leak from the antenna.. Didn't realize how much at the time.

New receiver. I can work it from the Bremerton airport. Im freakin tired.

Roger that. I must not have been in range. I kept hearing some hams operating a SOTA station. They were scratchy at times so I couldn't tell which peak they were at...
