W7W Summer Campout - S2S Party

Last year’s very successful and fun W7O Campout S2S Party (hosted by Amy AG7GP) was the inspiration for this campout. I live in the Vancouver, Washington area and frequently visit the Columbia Gorge and Gifford-Pinchot National Forest. One of my favorite areas to hike and do SOTA activations is the Trout Lake area, which is just north of Hood River, Oregon on the Washington side of the river. There are so many peaks in the area that you can visit dozens of times and still not hit them all!

All interested in SOTA are welcome, whether you're a SOTA Goat...or you are just starting on the SOTA journey.

Mount Cavanaugh, WA | May 2019


May 18th was the Puget Sound S2S party. I had plans to take my son dirt biking in Walker Valley in the afternoon, so I needed a quick summit that was resonably close to Walker Valley ORV park. Mount Cavanagh fit the bill nicely, and was surprisingly pleasent!

Willamette Valley S2S Party | After The Airwaves Cooled

Saturday May 16, at noon, ten operators on nine summits participated
in the Willamette Valley S2S party. The weather was pretty much typical
Oregon/Washington spring-like, with fog and rain reported at most
summits. All activity was on 2m FM with most folks running 5 watts.

We had some good DX:
NS7P   <-->  AE7RP  172km (106.9mi) {NS7P @ 5W)
K7ATN  <-->  KG7O   180km (111.8mi) {K7ATN @ 5W, KG7O @ 30W}
NS7P   <-->  KG7O   206km (128mi)
