Mt. Helix – SOTA Activation – W6/SC-352 – June 23, 2016

This was an early morning SOTA activation of Mt. Helix (W6/SC-352) close to San Diego. A joint activation with KB6CIO (Bob) after an early morning coffee close to Mt. Helix.

The summit offers some great views and a church amphitheater with sufficient shade to operate and setup your antenna. Mt. Helix is worth a visit and highly recommended whenever one happens to be in the area.

The bands were pretty much dead and so we called it a day before the heat started to develop in full strength.
