Nice note from Bob Witte (K0NR) about the upcoming "Colorado 14er Event" on 03 August 2014.  The event is part of the larger Summits on The Air (SOTA) Program, "opening up over 1m700 summits in Colorado for ham radio activity."  The "14er" will focus on the 54 peaks in Colorado with elevations of 14,000 feet or more.  Bob advises climbers to train well, adhere to accepted safety standards, and provide backup communications.  For hams operating the event at home, you can contact the climbers on 2 meter FM, beginning with 147.42 MHz simplex.  The article provides a link to other FM and HF frequencies that will be used that day.  Good Luck!  Aloha de Russ (KH6JRM).
