Ran an FT817 with a dipole at 12 feet on 6m and 4 ele yagi on 2m at 8 ft. Operated from a SOTA (Summits On The Air) summit (W7A/MN-147) that I hiked to with all of the equipment, ropes/tarps, and lots of water. Temperature was about 100F when I called it quits after four hours on the hill...too hot to continue after that. The hike down the mountain in those temps was "interesting." This year I had the best 6M opening I have caught so far as a QRP Hilltopper. Many DX stations gave me a 5x9 with my 5 watts and the dipole, so that was fun. I got lucky and chose the right time slot to operate this year. Thanks to everyone who worked year I may have to hike a summit with an A/C unit? 73 Pete WA7JTM QRP Hilltopper DM33
