Those roving stations sure have a lot of fun, but Dick has probably bored
and confused the non-hams here.

I'm hiking section P in a couple weeks. If anyone knows what repeater to use
at Gumboot Lake, Kangaroo Lake, Scott Mtn Summit, and Etna Summit please let
me know off list. I'm guessing Mt Shasta probably works all over, but not
sure if the canyons have coverage, and need contact with my support (yes,
I'm slacking this section).
