Title: Stop by Reddish Knob this weekend. 18-19 Jan
Post by: nosigma on January 16, 2020, 10:49:06 PM
I will be up on Reddish Knob this weekend working a radio contest.  Brave the the temps and ice, come on up and stop by.  4400ft with awesome views, especially Sunday with clear skys. 

Visit me and the run Flagpole.  Vastly more challenging after Saturday mornings ice than the EOY ride. 

I will monitor Ch 4 CB in case you need rescued.

Man up,  see you on the Knob.

Too cold and too icy.  1/2 ice forecast late Friday.  The chains would have gotten me up and down but it would have destroyed the antennas so I bailed and went to Freezeland road north of Linden.  Glad you didnt go up.  It was really bad up there.  I talked to a guy who lived on the second range on the radio and it was as bad or worse than predicted.

The contest went well despite being at just 2400ft.  I probably took first in the nation in the FM category.  Been trying win that one for 5 years.  I think I finally got my white whale.
