My adventure into Ham Radio started in the mid 50s with a one transistor crystal set I got for my 9th birthday. I roamed the neighborhoods clipping on to fences, down spouts and anything metal to see what I could pull in on that tiny earphone. I was enamored with radio waves. The magic that happens when out on the trail miles from no where and able to make contact using a simple wire in a tree and a tiny CW rig you've built yourself is what really does it for me still today! It's that same thrill I got from having my very 'First QSO' and hearing my call sign coming back to me from the other station ...but all over again.
Hope to see you on the bands from the trail or the mountain tops! W0-SOTA team recently qualified 1700 Colorado Summits for SOTA (Summits on the Air) activations. So watch for us on QRPspots and SOTAwatch website.
