Getting POTA contacts at the bottom of THE Canyon – IMPOSSIBLE?

Getting POTA contacts at the bottom of THE Canyon – IMPOSSIBLE?

Grand Canyon National Park. Getting to the bottom – OPTIONAL. Getting to the top MANDATORY! Sandy and I received our backcountry permit for 3 days in the Grand Canyon at Hermit Creek Campground. This was an 8.5 mile hike down, with an additional 1.5 miles to the Colorado river. Over 4300’ of elevation difference from start to finish, this was a fun but challenging adventure. Since I was in the Canyon, I was curious if I could make any contacts for Parks on the Air from the bottom. So, I took along my MTR3b and everything that goes with it. Is it impossible to make contacts this far down into a canyon? Find out what my experience was.
