Hi guys!

Planning to hike up to Shelf Lake, CO tomorrow and
operate on 20 meters for an hour or so. Hope to be on somewhere around
12 to 1 MDT. I'll be close to 14.060 mhz. I'll be with a non-ham buddy
so I'll probably keep the operating time fairly short.

I've never been to Shelf Lake but the topo map says
its a little lake (more like a pond) at 12000 feet
elevation. It sits in a bowl, almost totally
surrounded by 13000 foot ridges. Hopefully about a 2
hour hike in.

I'll have my k1 with a little self supporting 20 meter vertical.
Usually works pretty good but sitting down in that bowl I'm guessing
it'll be a pretty small qrp sig :-)!

I appreciate anyone with the time to listen for that
little N0SXX cq coming out of the mountains. I'll
probably send out a picture qsl with the location.
