10/14/15 – Beautiful day. Lots of wonderful smells. Short sweaty hike to top. Tallest peak in the SM Mtns. Clouds, breeze. 20m was dead. Lovely small fox walked past. Dropped my SL and ext meter. Damaged but operational. 20m inv V and dual band 2m/70cm looked great. Epic sunset and views. Tried psk31, jt65, CW, SSB- only 1 jt65 contact w Japanese station later in the eve. Plenty of 2m contacts. Furthest was Tiujuana MX. Bats, quail calling. Lightning!! Lots and lots- heard it in the radio.
