My 1st SOTA activation was 2/20/15 – 1 year ago almost to the day! Beautiful weather and had a great time. The moon was a really pleasant surprise. Lots of nice folks on the radio and the OMISS 40m net was good to me. Basically every station was 57 or above and I heard them all. Log bursting at the seams with 58 and 59 reports incl NY, PA, HI- and my 15 contacts incl AZ, WA, BC, ID, IA, GA, TX, SD, OR= FUN!
Shooting stars and simplex- good times.
