QST Article on Mountain-Topping Ops


Chuck Ferguson - N4CSF
 

Good morning!  As many of you may already know, the Feb 2022 edition of QST has a really interesting article about mountain-topping ops.  It features McMinn County ARC (Athens) members, who organize mountain-top field events in and around the Great Smoky Mountains.  They work a variety of FM & HF phone bands, POTA, SOTA, as well as APRS and other digital modes.  Of course, mountain tops provide some of the most effective antenna “masts” and lines of sight around.  The article shows you can have lots of fun running field ops events while honing your portable system skills and gaining valuable EMCOMM working experience.
