Arod Lakes is in the extreme NE corner of DN37, and with any luck and lots of scouting there might be something on the DN37-38 grid line around here. If you're bold, you might talk to the farmhouse at DN38xa40 and see if they'll let you park on the grid line.

This marker here is at a parking area and boat ramp along the shore of Arod Lakes.

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.
