    Great job. I hope you are still doing your ham/HF activities. I am trying to do some SOTA stuff myself as soon as I finish putting together an HF rig and setup that is portable enough to do back-packing or camping. Thanks for your video, it is very inspiring to see what can be done with a little bit of equipment and at qrp power levels. Cheers and 73!

    Nicely done! A tip :- Tie of the end of the line and attach a small carabiner to it…dead easy to attach it to anything else you want 😉

    Hi Diana. Nice work. I'm from Australia. My call is VK2HFN. Easy to remember HFN, the HF Nut.
    I've done plenty of portable but haven't done any summits as yet. Hoping to get to some soon though. Maybe catch you on air.

    You mentioned an inverted "t" dipole but showed hoisting the end of the antenna instead of the balun "center" up into the trees. Did you run just one side into the trees or both?

    Great video. I find it slightly irritating how he guy in Italy responds so quickly with barely any pause. It’s instantaneous with no natural flow. Maybe he had too much coffee

    Awesome! Thanks for posting this vid. I'm a brand new Tech. class HAM and one of the primary reasons I'm getting into it is specifically for what you are presenting here, setting up for RX coms in the mountains. Nice intro!

    Nice job Diana and that contact to Italy is a credit to your choice of antenna/location. Well done. 100 Watt TRx on the right frequency will get around the world.

    Huge smile on my face right now, Why? It's so great to see more and more of the younger generations laying down the cell phones and getting involved in amateur radio!

    This video is refreshing. All of the ham radio stuff can be complicated sometimes. Thank you
