W6/SC-369 Temple Hill or “Top of the World”

Over Thanksgiving weekend (November 26), I checked out this easy drive-on peak near Laguna Beach that’s well-known to the people of Orange County. There were a lot of folks there to watch the sunset, and it was a truly spectacular sight with the low-rolling fog and clouds. A few people were flying drones around to film the scenery.

I used a small bush near the top to hold up my antenna and got to work. The bands were packed due to the CQWW CW contest, so I just picked off a few contest stations on 20m while watching the sun set.

Thanks to all the (contest) chasers: N7DR, JH4UYB, BY3M, and KH7B.
