New Activation, 29 July, 2014 - W7M/RC-123, Deer Mountain
After 4 hours of playing with antennas, reprogramming radios and leaning into the wind we finally activated W7M/RC-017, Deer Mountain.
The last 2 hikes have not been very productive. Sula Peak only produced 2 contacts due to a ridge to the north masking my signal. St. Mary's Peak was a bust because my antenna problems were just in the early stages. No matter, the third time is the charm and we now have activated Deer Mountain. Next up Sweeney Peak.
