Sunset Mtn 1

Sunset Mtn is a peak east of Missoula with a good access but a few radio towers.

From here, highest point on the horizon is 3 degrees elevation toward central California. As shown in the profile, much of the horizon is below 0 degrees. Lance W7GJ plans to activate it in 2020 with a kw and 6M5XHG during the ARRL June VHF Contest.

Restrictions: Typically snowed in until mid June.

Point Six 1 Point Six 2

Point Six is a peak just north of Missoula and not far from the Snowbowl Ski Resort. It's in the very southwest corner of DN37.

Here is a view to the southeast when Lance W7GJ checked out the site in 2019 with a rotatable dipole and 100w. Horizon is under 5 degrees elevation from 45 degrees azimuth around through south to 340 degrees, providing a clear shot at the entire continental US plus KH6 and KL7.

As you can see in the profile image, much of the horizon is below 0 degrees. Lance plans to activate it in 2020 with several hundred watts and a 6M5XHG antenna.

Restrictions: Typically snowed in until mid June.
