When I got excited about ham radio again I decided to start setting some goals for myself. Time to review my goals for 2016.
1. Earn 100 SOTA Activator Points – ACHIEVED!
My 2016 total for Activator Points was 211. I had a terrific time activating with my sons Nick N6NGG and Will N6WMG. Avid mountain hikers, we were not shy about going for some of the tough summits locally including Iron Mountain W6/CT-056 and San Gorgonio W6/CT-245. I also met some of the folks who are involved locally with SOTA here in Southern California. Finding like minded peak bagger/radio enthusiasts is great and I even ended up doing some joint activations with Paul W6PNG. I look forward to doing more in 2017.
One of the highlights of 2016 was activating Mt. Whitney W6/SN-001 with my sons.
