Did a quick hike up to Twin Peaks to get some exercise and test out my deployment of the K6ARK Spider Thread Antenna. The hike was an easy one up to the summit and included a hilarious roll off a rock due to a stupid overcommitment on a step. It was fairly hot today, about 80. I was enjoyable to be 9 lbs lighter in the equipment department. If I can keep the gut weight off, that would be awesome.
After setup, I reached out to the DMR group here in San Diego and asked if anyone wanted to try a simplex call over DMR. AI6CX is always ready to help and W6CRC in Poway jumped in as well.
