Hiking and Amateur Radio

I enjoy hiking and Amateur Radio (Ham Radio).  I have been able to combine the two with hiking to a summit and using my radio.  I just put a radio in my pack and a wire antenna and a battery.  I joined Summits on the Air (SOTA) and you can earn points which are just for bragging rights.  I just enjoy getting outdoors.  I have been able to get friends to join me that are not regular hikers so I try to pick an easy summit.  There is also a Parks on the Air organization too.  I enjoy wilderness camping and I can always make a contact by radio where cell phone service is not available.
