On August 26, a group of members did a SOTA/POTA Activation from the top of Mount Washington, the highest peak in the Northeast at 6288 ft. Members reached the summit by different means. Abby, AB1BY and Mike AB1YK hiked to the summit. Patrick, KC1HDN and his XYL Dorothy took the Cog Railway and others took the Mount Washington Auto Road.
Driving up the Auto Road
We had great weather on the mountain. Clouds sometimes passed overhead but it was sunny most of the time which provided for great views of the surrounding White Mountains.
Operating at the Summit
The station was powered by batteries and solar panels.
Fred, Tony, and I had a great time operating the station, completing over 50 QSOs all over the Northeast.
After the Activation
Thanks to Tony, KC1DXL, and his XYL Josephine, who hosted us for a delicious dinner at their nearby condo after the activation.
Thanks to Jamey, KC1ENX, for planning a great day for club members! This was our 3rd SOTA/POTA activation this year and each one has been better than the previous one! We’re looking forward to the next summit!
