Not a lot of SOTA to be had in Central Texas but .52 can certainly get crowded during the VHF contests. There does seem to be more activity these days on simplex, the Oak Hill club in South Austin hosts a Simplex activity night I think on Tuesday's called South Side Simplex. I would need a pretty big beam to participate though since I am far northeast these days. During the VHF contests I have parked a couple of times at the overlook on Loop 360 overlooking downtown Austin and can do pretty good with just the mobile antenna. I should give SOTA a shot one of these days.
