N0SA Activates Ketcherside Mountain (W0M/SF-003) on 09 FEB 2013

Larry Naumann, N0SA, from the St. Louis area, had a successful activation of Ketcherside Mountain.  After an extremely difficult climb through heavily damaged, downed tree cover, Larry was on the air on schedule, starting on 40 meter CW.  First QSO was with W4RK in Jefferson City, MO, followed in rapid succession by QSOs with N0ZH, Mike, in New Bloomfield, MO and K0LAF, Charlie, in southwest Missouri.  Conditions on 40 meters were excellent close in and Larry had a nice pileup to enjoy before shifting to 20 meters to make other Chasers happy with QSOs ranging further away.  

This was Larry's first activation and he did a great job, putting 30 QSOs in the log until there were no more Chasers calling.  This was the second activation in the new W0M-Association's short history, coming just over a week after the first one on the opening day on 01 FEB 2013 when W4RK activated Taum Sauk Mountain (W0M/SF-001).

Congratulations to Larry, N0SA, for keeping the momentum going in the W0M-Missouri Association!
