Grasshopper
I was looking for SOTA peaks in areas that would interest both myself and Hank that have never been activated and this is one that I proposed to Hank. He jumped on it.

I got to see the full setup of the Transformer known as the "Grasshopper" and it did well. Hank is a 4wd pro and if you get the opportunity to ride with him it is obvious.

After navigating the road we arrived at the Two Bar Ridge North TH and headed up to the Summit. It became evident on the way up that there had been a fire there recently. I remembered hearing of a Pinyon fire in the news a few months back which was confirmed by the summit register.

Band conditions were poor on HF. I only made 25 contacts mostly with in a few hundred miles of Arizona. I did however get WA7ORV AKA "Hank" to activate his first peak with the new call. Hank did a great job and I think he enjoyed it also. The group of guys from the valley were happy to work him on 2m and 12m.

I forgot to mention the wind was blowing something fierce up on the peak and I had to get behind some rocks to be able to hear the radio. I also got to test a kit radio I built and it also performed well it only weighs 10oz so for some trips this maybe the primary unit.

After I finished my activation and we both got our pictures we headed back down and I got to enjoy some more of Hanks 4wd skills on the way back to the highway.

It was a fun day thanks Hank!
