Most Used Frequencies for Summits on the Air Activations

Harquahala Mountain is notoriously steep and requires a good off-road vehicle to make it to the top. I hopped in the jeep with Alex K7AEM for this SOTA activation. Alex frequently goes on long extended off road trips and has a lot of 4×4 experience. Since I was with Alex, I asked him to talk a little about off-roading tips. Then I answered a question that quite a number of viewers have asked – "How do you get so many contacts and what are the most common SOTA frequencies used by activators". This was a fun one. Enjoy!

Valentines Day SOTA with the YL

Beautiful weather in the mountains of Anza Borrego were too tempting to pass up, so Johnnie and I headed out to a beautiful part of the park with a fun SOTA summit. A little hiking, SOTA, and rock climbing made for a fun day. Hope you enjoy coming along for the adventure.

I have to say, I’m a pretty lucky guy to have a better half who loves the outdoors as much as I do, and is willing to spend a little extra time on a summit a summit while I play radio.
