Activation 24 Nov 2012, 9 Dec 2012

Made two QSOs on 2m with the HT, KI6VH/m in Huntington Beach and N6CRR in Palmdale. Will activate on HF once I get a battery to bring up with my IC-706. Beautiful sunny day today. A great spot for SOTA, pines for shade and to tie antenna too, rocks to sit on. Great views into Bear Canyon, notable is CT-083 which looks difficult to get to down in the San Gabriel Wilderness. Returned on Dec 9 for my first HF activation, 6 QSOs with a crummy wire antenna a few feet above the ground.
