    Hiking and Amateur Radio – my two favorite hobbies. It’s difficult to avoid setting goals for yourself as another year begins. As I was thinking about what I wanted to accomplish this year, the 6 peaks in 12 hours challenge came to mind. This is a challenge of my own making, created to push myself physically, while having fun playing radio. I set out to hike to the top of 6 different Summits on the Air peaks and activate each of them, all within a 12-hour timeframe. As an added challenge, the last peak would be the most difficult, forcing me to dig deep for the completion. Check it out and see if I was up to the challenge.

    Bravo and well done! I really enjoyed this video, mostly because you introduced me to all the hiking opportunities around Phoenix. I wasn't aware SOTA was a thing on VHF/UHF FM. Not sure my hiking partner (wife) would sit still for multiple radio breaks on the trail but it certainly would add another interesting activity to the mix (for me). de Brad-WP2B

    Many compliments for the peaks, forthe activations and for the interesting video!
    Nice mountains there in Arizona, really, I didn't know even that they existed.
    And did not imagine so many people would hike there and climb those peaks, too.
    Many 73s from the Alps de IU2IJW,
