Hamming on Top of the World

photos by Eric Sanderson

After spending two hours setting a possible World Record in a rowboat, I couldn't help but climb the rest of the way up to the summit of Mt Evans and try some pedestrian mobile. It was a nice day at 14,260 feet. The most interesting contact was when I finally got to talk to Mark, KIØPF, on 17 meters for the first time ever. He lives in southern Colorado about 70 miles away. Usually, if he and I are out playing radio at the same time, we will ask our contacts, often on the East Coast, to relay our greetings to each other.

Can you spot the ham in this picture?
