Pt. 2000 Temecula, CA – SOTA Activation – W6/CT-221 – July 16, 2015

On relative short notice Bob (KB6CIO) joined me for a SOTA activation near Temecula, CA. It was extremely hot even during the early morning hours and propagation was not our friend. It was extremely difficult to make contacts but we finally managed to make a few.

The California drought conditions are really apparent in this area around Temecula and require an early activation time – even early is a relative term.

So this is just a short report with some views of Pt. 2000 (actually a hill next to it but within the activation zone) the actual summit is on private property.

Thanks to all the chasers for the QSOs despite the dreadful propagation conditions.
