Default Yes, I think so too...

Plus, you guys will have Seldom Seen and I to talk to on Mt Bross. We are doing the HAM 14er event http://www.14er.org on that sunday, which is why I can't help lead/gun runs.

Here are the simplex frequencies for that event, maybe we can coordinate everyone to help us make contacts!

147.420
Primary 2M FM Frequency
(go here first to find activity, then
move up 15 kZ as the frequency gets busy)

446.000
Primary 70 cm FM frequency

From Mt Bross, you guys on Red Cone will have a good chance of hearing them. Certainly on Wheeler we'll be listening, although it might be easier to string up a clothes line and a cans from Bross to Wheeler Lake. Heck, just throw notes tied to rocks from the lake to the summit of Bross.

All the 14ers around Wheeler Lake will have HAM operators on them. Lincoln and Democrat will be stationed, as well as us on Mt Bross. The purpose is to make as many 14er to 14er contacts as possible, as well as many non-14er contacts as well. Longest distance (usually made by contacting the group on Mt Sunflower in Kansas), longest distance between 14ers are all categories for the event.

The event is not set up like most HAM radio events, where people are scrambling for points and multipliers. Rather, it is in the interest of fun of Mountaineering and HAM radio. Anyone who wants to make contact may do so and is encouraged to do so, regardless of QTH. Thats what makes it fun. It is really excited and confusing when it begins, but it calms down to a nice pace after most of the mountian top operators get on the air and situated.

From Mt Princeton on my HT using a homebrew 3 element 2M yagi I made contacts on the front range as well as to Pike Peak on 1 watt.

Brian and I will be using 2 2M yagis, a 6 element tri-bander for HF (with the possibility for a linear amplifier hooked up--lifes too short for QRP, ain't it?) so give us a call! We'll look for you guys!
