This site has promise at least on 50 Mhz towards the lower mainland and PNW and beyond. Will have try 144 Mhz and perhaps 222 on a subsequent visit.

Access was fairly easy to this large pull out beside a mainline BC logging road. The space is more than wide enough to accommodate both a ham radio setup and another vehicle using the pull out to handle two-way traffic.

It was a busy area with hunters, hikers, dirt bikers, bicyclists, 4x4ers, etc. There's a fire pit there which implies people have camped here.

There might be a few other spots within a Km or so to the South that might be as good or better, but site I parked in was vacant and seemed ok.

Restrictions: Bring tire chains. Mark VE7AFZ has encountered snow in September in prior years.
