First SOTA Outing - Mon, Oct 14, 2013

Tried to activate Snowstorm Mountain, needless to day it was quite a challenge.

First off my cell phone was dead, so I couldnt post any spots. My APRS HT was also dead due to the cold weather. It was windy and cold on top of the mountain and the dipole I was trying to get up would not do what I wanted it to do.

Got on SSB and had a hard time finding a free freq. My APRS HT was cycling on and off with every APRS transmission.

Going to try it tomorrow now that I can be a little more prepared.
