The activation of Niguel Hill together with K6KWI (Neil) and KB6CIO (Bob) made it necessary that we split the bands we would be using for the activation.
So I choose the 12m band and used it during the activation this morning. The summit is easy to find just drive until the end of Talavera Drive in Laguna Niguel, CA and use the trail close to the entrance of the summit community. There is plenty of shade and nice picknic tables to set up your operation.
The views from the summit are just gorgeous with the Pacific Ocean to the West and snow-covered mountains towards the East.
The band conditions were excellent and allowed for some interesting DX from Niguel Hill.
Thanks for the QSO to all stations and 73, WN6E :
