I activated my first summit for Summits On The Air!
|I made a stop at Snowbird Mountain, W4T/SU-035, on June 22 2016. The approach road gets pretty steep within the last 2 miles of the summit. I was happy to be in my jeep! I arrived around 5:30p. There was no gate at the top as described by some others, just a gravel area surrounding the VORTAC with a short wooden fence (maybe 3ft high) around the building. I drove around the building and parked at as far away from everything as I could and grabbed my gear.|
|The AT maintainers in the area have done a great job of keeping the grass and brush cut low from the parking area down to the AT and along that open section of the AT. It made finding a spot right at the benchmark very easy.
I was setup and operational at 6:27p local and had to start packing up at 7:09p local due to bad weather moving in.
Thanks to N1GB, K4MF, ND0C, W0MNA, W0ERI, NG6R, AK5SD, K4KSW, KX0R, N0VMI, KJ4FGI, and AC1Z for the contacts.
