Mount Herman, just for fun

Today Lynn had school and I was home alone unsupervised so a quick activation of Mount Herman was in order. I debated between Herman and Signal Butte but in the end it was car time that decided. It is only an hour to the Mount Herman TH so Mount Herman it was.

The rig was a Steve Weber designed MTR that I built for 30 and 20 meters. The antenna was a tuned EF linked for 20 and 30 meters. Power was supplied by a Zippy LiPo 850 milli amp hour, 11. 1 volt battery.

It was in the mid 30s or so at the TH. The snow was deep in spots but it was a nice hike.

I am out of shape and this simple summit really kicked me. I need to get out more.

Thanks Chasers.
