August 10th Colorado 14er Special Event

Steve/N0TU, Guy/N7UN, and Dan/K0UIF, all part of the Old Goats QRPexpedition Team, are planning a summit activation of one of the 54 Colorado "14ers", mountains over 14,000' ASL. This effort will be during the Colorado 14ers Special Event where radio amateurs activate a peak to communicate with other amateurs. Primary activity will take place between 1500 and 1800 UTC on HF/VHF/UHF frequencies. See for more information. The Old Goats team effort will primarily be QRP HF on 40/30/20m but will have 144/440 SSB capability also. This is a picture of Uncompaghre Mtn at 14,309' ASL, our target for August.

And Steve's pack goats, Rooster and Peanut, will be our "sherpas" in support of this team effort, making the "story" that much more exciting and memorable. See more adventures of Rooster and Peanut at
