Activated W7M/GA-069 Rumsey Mtn with XYL Debbie on 4 Jan 2013. Rumsey Mtn is
located 16 miles NE of Anaconda Montana (home of one of the largest freestanding
chimneys' in the world, 585 ft, I guess it would qualify for a summit?)and is
part of Discovery Basin ski area. Triple chair takes you close to the top, but
you should traverse the ridge to the east to stay off the main ski trails.
Discovery Basin is privatley held, so I did check in with both the lift operator
and ski patrol before activating. This is Lodge Pole pine country so finding an
antenna support was easy. 30 HF ssb contacts followed by a speedy descent down
Claim Jumper run. Outstanding views of the Pintler Mtns. Easy enough to figure
out why they call this "Big Sky Country" Thank you all the chasers. Scott
