Mount Davidson (W6/NC-423) SOTA Activation

On October 31, 2015, I visited Mount Davidson in San Francisco. This is the highest natural point in the city and it is the home of a giant concrete cross famously featured in the film Dirty Harry. The summit is at an elevation of 928′ and is worth one SOTA point.

After parking in the surrounding neighborhood, it was a very short hike (less than one mile) to the peak. Again, I used a Yaesu FT-60R with a handheld 3-element 2m Yagi to make these contacts. Many curious dog walkers, bikers, and joggers were curious about my very conspicuous Yagi! All in all, it was a nice, quick trip to the city.

2m QSOs: K6BMC, W4NJK, AF6JP, KJ6OG.
