Fall is the perfect time for hiking, it's not too hot and not too cold. Last weekend I took a day trip to hike up High Mountain in New Jersey and activate SOTA summit W2/NJ008. It's really easy to set up an HF portable radio and not a whole lot to carry up the mountain. This video shows how to get set up including how to hang the antenna in a cluster of trees and making contact with Italy. http://blog.makezine.com/archive/2009/10/how_to_set_up_an_hf_portable_radio.html
