Keller Peak was a joint activation with KB6CIO (Bob) and KN6CCW (Ken). The summit can be reached without difficulties from the S18 right after Running Springs. Just turn into Keller Peak Road and continue until the parking lot close to the summit. The fire tower on the summit can be explored starting at 9:00am. The sights and views from the summit are great and well worth the visit.

View from the summit
The sunspots and general propagation was not in our favor and made HF contacts quite difficult. Nevertheless I managed three S2S (Summit to summit) contacts with N6MKW (Mike) on Throop Peak, N0OI (Scott) on Onyx Peak and N6JZT on Mt. Islip.
