We'll be hiking to the summit of Black Mountain this Saturday, Nov. 19th, to operate portable radios and antennas. We'll try making voice, digital, and CW contacts, and perhaps try making contacts using solar power as well. If conditions are good, we should be able to make contacts up to several thousand miles away.
