Who else uses Amateur Radio while backpacking?? We do! Here’s a picture of myself on top of Mount Whitney, CA at an elevation of 14,505 ft. We were on our last day of of a 9 day long backpacking trip. We hiked the entire High Sierra Trail (HST). We started in Sequoia National Park and hiked about 80 miles to Whitney Portal. We have found amateur radio to be a great hobby along the trail. It also helps us when our group gets separated or is exploring various off trail routes. We can send out scouts to test routes before everyone else hauls all their gear to a dead end.
If you do… What’s your call sign??? I’m K6AMS 73s
